Countdown has launched their brand new campaign ‘Every Day’s a Fresh Day’, celebrating the freshness of local produce, whilst showcasing the deep connection Kiwis’ have for the land where it grows.
The story centres on the idea that there’s nothing fresher than the miracle of a new morning – particularly here in Aotearoa where we are so lucky to have some of the most spectacular landscapes and rich soils for growing. The campaign, ‘Every Day’s a Fresh Day’, showcases the start of a brand new day in New Zealand, bursting with possibilities.
Whether it’s Countdown’s local growers out in the field, truck drivers driving to deliver fresh fruit & veges across the country, store teams carefully filling the shelves, or the customers bringing their own unique ways to enjoy fruit and veg – every piece of produce, from the humble carrot to the juicy mandarin, gets the love and care it deserves every step along the way. Right until it lands on the plate and is devoured.
“Day-in, day-out, rain or shine, thousands of Countdown team members, from growers and pickers to drivers to store workers and everyone in-between, work tirelessly and obsessively, to bring customers nothing but the best and freshest produce. This story is a love letter to that level of care, the produce itself, and the miracle of every morning,” says Paul Hankinson, Executive Creative Director at M&C Saatchi.
“We are incredibly lucky here in New Zealand to have some of the best fruit and veggies in the world – with growers spread right across the country who are so proud of the hard work and care that goes into every piece. We wanted to show not only how that love shows up in the field, but also how it’s carried right through the journey into our stores and ultimately to a customer. ‘Every Day’s a Fresh Day’ is about capturing the magic of the morning, the sheer beauty of our land, and the people across every day who produce, deliver and care for your food,” says Brid Drohan-Stewart, General Manager Brand at Countdown.
‘Every Day’s a Fresh Day’ will run on screens as 60”, 45”, 30” and 6” on YouTube. It will also run in Large Format OOH, high impact digital and instore.
