Red Tractor urges industry to benefit from biggest ever on-pack promotion

Added 26 Oct 2016
Red Tractor Assurance’s (RTA) autumn promotion is on track to be the most successful ever and the organisation is calling on retailers, suppliers and foodservice operators to get behind the campaign and benefit during the remaining few weeks.

Designed to raise awareness of the standards behind the Red Tractor scheme, the promotion gives consumers the chance to win a Premier Cottages UK mini-break in a luxury four or five star self-catering cottage every day until 20th November. With on-pack promotional labels across a whole range of Red Tractor assured products, including meat, poultry, dairy, cereals, fruit and vegetables, at the half way point in the campaign there have already been more than 200,000 competition entries, averaging nearly 6,000 a day!

With over 13.7m brand impressions via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, the brand videos have been viewed 813,000 times and 45,000 people have opted in to receive further information from Red Tractor, increasing RTA’s opt-in audience to over 100,000 signed up consumers.

These impressive numbers are only set to increase in the coming weeks, as AHDB Beef & Lamb’s mini-roast campaign is back on TV until 20th November. Airing in peak time shows, such as Coronation Street and The X Factor results show, the end frame features the Red Tractor promotion.

RTA marketing manager, Andy Thompson, commented: “These results are absolutely phenomenal and show that the campaign is clearly resonating with consumers. It goes without saying we are delighted with the engagement so far, so a big thank you to those that have supported us. Achieving numbers like these is a dream for many businesses, so by working more closely with us we can all share in the success - there has never been a better time to get involved, so if you haven’t already signed up, then please get in touch.

“The promotion will remain live until the 20th November and during this time we will continue to post interesting daily facts about the Red Tractor scheme on social media, so not only are we calling on our loyal retailers who are already doing a fantastic job, we want the supply chain and foodservice operators to get more involved too.

“They can do this easily through social media activity by following us, liking our posts and reposting them to help spread the word. In addition, it’s not too late to sign up for the on-pack promotion or get campaign materials on site. To benefit from the increased customer footfall, you just need to visit the Red Tractor website or call the number below to take part.

“By working together and doing what we can to encourage shoppers to look for the logo on pack, on menus and in catering establishments, we can make a real difference to the awareness and understanding of the Red Tractor scheme.”

As well as the chance to win a daily luxury holiday, there are a number of other prizes up for grabs, including Aldi and Lidl vouchers worth £100, Wensleydale cheese hampers, Muscle Food vouchers worth £100 and Co-Op vouchers worth £50.
