Meadow Fresh and Y&R are having some fun with the launch of a Greek yoghurt by asking: ‘is it good enough for Gwyneth?’.

The incumbent Shine, FCB and Y&R are understood to be vying against each other for the Goodman Fielder portfolio, which includes Meadow Fresh, Vogel's, Puhoi Valley, Freya's and a number of other brands.
A teacher who taught in a war zone, an environmental activist who put her body in harm's way and an unlikely speaker of Te Reo come together in a heartwarming spot that serves to showcase that being a New Zealander has less to do with the way we look and far more to do with who we are.
Back in 2011, Vogel's received plaudits for a pun-laden outdoor campaign that cheekily tapped into the hype around the Rugby World Cup, even though it wasn't a sponsor. And it's trying something similar during the Cricket World Cup.
Bread with "no nasties" wins Goodman Fielder the October 2014 Ad Impact Award from Colmar Brunton, while a slap of paint with a clap of the hands gain Clemenger BBDO a nod, and a quick save for Sealord gets Ogilvy & Mather an honourable mention.
Goodman Fielder has picked up August’s Colmar Brunton Ad Impact Award for its spot featuring a baker attempting to evade a horde of villagers desperate to get their hands on a freshly baked loaf of Freya’s new low carb bread. PLUS: Reactive appointed Goodman Fielder's digital agency.
After a competitive pitch, it's thought Shine has won the Goodman Fielder dairy business, which means it has said goodbye to Fonterra.
Since the closure of Publicis Mojo at the end of last year, Goodman Fielder has been working with Joy, the agency set up by ex-Mojo chair and chief executive Graeme Wills.

Babyboomers are often portrayed as greedy, BMW-driving, house-hogging, tax avoiding luddites. But they also use the internet, have Facebook pages and watch YouTube. So why should they miss out on all the viral marketing fun? As no one was really catering to them specifically in this area, Publicis Mojo Auckland, Goodman Fielder Australia's Lawson's bread and The Down Low Concept have tried to fill the gap with a light-hearted look at that particular life-stage, with self-help tips delivered by one of the statesmen of Australian comedy Trevor Marmalade.
New Zealand likes Vogel's. And puns. And, when it comes to the rules around RWC advertising, loopholes. So it was no surprise to hear actual humans—not just marcomms insiders—commenting on how much they liked the combination of these three things in Publicis Mojo's recent work for the Goodman Fielder bread brand. In our eyes, it was one of the best outdoor campaigns of the year, so, as a tribute to impressive punmanship and supreme confidence, here's the lot of them, including a post-victory billboard that oozes smugness.
Australasian food giant Goodman Fielder is apparently cutting staff from its New Zealand operations.
