PR agency POP adds Sanitarium and Aroma coffee to its roster

PR agency POP has added Sanitarium and Aroma coffee to its roster.

The announcement: 

Creative communications agency POP has expanded its portfolio of food and drink clients after being appointed as PR agency for International Roaster of the Year, Aroma Coffee, and for the launch of Weet-Bix Gluten Free from Sanitarium.

Iconic Australian brand Sanitarium selected POP to engineer the launch after being presented with a combined activation strategy with parent company BWM.

Ashley Douglas, director of The POP Agency, said she was very excited to be working with such an iconic company.

“We knew Weet-Bix Gluten Free would grab the attention of Australian consumers and we wanted the launch to reflect that. We wanted to harness Sanitarium’s vision and brand visibility to create something unforgettable,” she said.

Working alongside advertising agency BWM, POP has delivered an integrated launch across digital, traditional and social platforms.

Alex Garas Senior Brand Manager – Weet-Bix at Sanitarium said: “POP understood our audience and has created a launch that speaks directly to them. This product breaks the mould in the Australian food market and POP was able to capture that with their ideas for the launch.”

The expertise that won The POP Agency the Weet-Bix account has also been recognised by boutique roasting house Aroma Coffee.

POP was approached directly by Aroma Coffee after they won Roaster of the Year Award at the  International Coffee Championships in Melbourne.

POP created a social and traditional media strategy to capitalise on the award and the company’s unique cultural and environmental assets in order to build brand awareness.

Ashley Douglas said: “Being approached by Aroma directly was a real gesture of confidence on their part, and we’ve been working very closely with Gavin Gam, the Managing Director, to help his business grow.

“We understand what it takes to build a brand and are committed to developing Aroma’s popularity,” she said.

These wins bolster The POP Agency’s existing food and beverage client expertise. As the agency for clients including the Grains and Legumes Nutritional Council, Sydney Fish Market and Fruit Juice Australia, POP has a proven record of strong, innovative campaigns in the food and beverage sector.

The POP Agency launched in February and is part of the BWM Group.
