product news: McCoy's launches depot activity

03 June, 2016

McCoy’s is amplifying its national ‘When Flavour Calls’ activity with bespoke and interactive displays in select wholesale depots across the UK. The campaign is being supported with a £3m marketing investment, including a new TV advert which is live now across ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, digital channels and online throughout 2016.

Featuring in 15 Bestway and Dhamecha cash & carries, the dynamic phone box themed displays will showcase McCoy’s’ most popular flavours - Flame Grilled Steak, Salt & Malt Vinegar and Cheddar & Onion – and drive awareness of the brand’s recent product upgrade, designed to give shoppers a stronger flavour and better texture across the McCoy’s range.

Matt Collins, trading controller convenience and wholesale at KP Snacks, said: “We want to strengthen our in-depot presence as well as drive engagement with our customers, and the interactive displays are a sure-fire way of doing this. Depot managers are excited to have the phone boxes on show and it’s important that we continue supporting our wholesale partners with striking displays that create theatre and disrupt retailers on their auto-pilot journey.

“We’ve heavily invested in McCoy’s over the years. In 2014, we partnered up with celebrity ‘pub landlord’ Al Murray to recreate a local UK pub in the heart of Rio during the World Cup. Then in 2015 we launched the ‘Win Your Club’ on-pack promotion which offered fans an array of ‘money-can’t-buy’ prizes such as a behind the scenes tour of their local football club. This year, we’re really focusing on the product and making McCoy’s famous for delivering on flavour.”
