Flandria teams up with Lactalis
In July (weeks 28-29), Flandria ran its first special joint campaign with Lactalis, the group behind Président cheese. The aim was to get together with Flandria as a preferred partner to stimulate sales of both lettuce and cheese and gauge the scope of this type of campaign. An extensive range of packed Flandria lettuce varieties were stickered 'Free Président Petits Chèvres 100 g'. Customers buying the goat's cheeses got 100% cashback from Lactalis. “The idea is that this involved both partners supplying a recipe tip: a goat's cheese salad”, says Ilse Ceulemans, head of marketing at LAVA. “The range of lettuces being grown in accordance with the Flandria specifications is extensive. Alongside cabbage lettuce there are varieties such as lamb's lettuce, Lollo bionda and Lollo rossa, oak-leaf lettuce, curly endive, batavia, iceberg, cos, rocket and radicchio. The strict quality label reassures customers that the lettuce is guaranteed fresh and has been grown sustainably. Delicious with goat's cheese”, as the LAVA head of marketing puts it.
