Given its stature as the largest milk brand in India, Amul has undertaken the initiative to educate the Indian consumer about the goodness of milk and milk products and encourage consumption. With this objective, it has conceived the ‘Eat milk with every meal’ campaign that has been created by FCB Ulka.

 

The press and digital campaign brings alive the nutritional benefits of various dairy products, be it milk, butter, paneer, ice cream or even ghee. The campaign started in July 2013 in national and regional press, comprising of publications like The Times of India, The Hindustan Times, The Telegraph, Deccan Chronicle and The Hindu. Simultaneously the campaign was launched online on Facebook. Later a dedicated website www.amul.com/eatmilk was also launched for better interaction with the consumers. The campaign was designed by FCB Ulka Advertising.

 

At the recently conducted World Dairy Innovation Awards 2014 during the 8th Global Dairy Congress at Istanbul, Amul bagged the best marketing campaign for the campaign, which was received by KM Jhala, Chief General Manager, GCMMF.

 

The other finalists in this category were Quench (US) for its Turkey Hill Dairy blog ‘The Ice Cream Journal’, Saputo (Canada) for Milk 2 Go Sport – Dufour-Lapointe Sisters, Muller Dairy (UK) for the Muller Rice Tasty B Campaign, and Cayenne (Austria).
