The makers of Dinty Moore® Beef Stew were recognized with a Gold Effie Award for its “Lumberjacks Eat Moore” campaign at the 2018 North American Effie Awards Gala held in New York City last night. The campaign was also a contender for the Grand Effie award.
BBDO Minneapolis and contributing agency PHD partnered with the brand on the campaign.
“The campaign was all about connecting the rich brand heritage of Dinty Moore® Beef Stew and its lumberjack roots while celebrating its place as a ‘working man’s fuel’ in pop-culture,” said Sarah Johnson, brand manager, Grocery Products at Hormel Foods.
The campaign focused on digital activation and sponsorship events and resulted in an 18 percent increase in baseline volume sales and 16 percent increase in household penetration.
“Winning an Effie is the ultimate prize for any client and agency team, as it celebrates fantastic creative ideas and outstanding business results,” said Ali Siviter, group account director, BBDO Minneapolis. “The fact that an 80-year-old brand capitalized on a millennial fashion trend to appeal to a broad demographic of consumers is what made this work really stand out.”
