Leo Burnett London Celebrates the Farmers and the Quality Ingredients Behind Mcdonald’s



Leo Burnett London has devised an integrated TV, radio and social campaign designed to celebrate the hard work of over 23,000 farmers across the UK and Ireland to deliver the quality ingredients that going into producing our food.

One 40” TV spot breaks on October 4th, followed by two 30” spots as well as cinema, radio and social elements. These will run across the UK and Republic of Ireland until the end of the year.

The story is told with the help of the real farmers and farm workers themselves as they show the nation the process of how they going about growing and rearing our produce.

“The ad was shot over five days travelling around real farms in the McDonald’s supply chain,” said Gary Lathwell, Creative at Leo Burnett London. “What you see in this film is what these farmers do day in day out, 365 days a year. Hats off to them. I thought our job was tough,”

Sam Houlston, Marketing Manager at McDonald’s, said: “We are extremely proud of all the hard work and care that goes into producing the quality ingredients that go into our food. It’s this hard work that helps us to ensure all of our customers continue to receive tasty food that they can trust.”

Pete Heyes, Creative Director at Leo Burnett London, added: “Bill Bernbach said, ‘The most powerful element in advertising is the truth’. The truth about McDonald’s ingredients in the UK is not only surprising, but really quite compelling. This story celebrates this with large dollops of honesty and charm.”

Media planning and buying was handled by OMD.

Dairy Famers of Canada Takes An Honest Approach in Latest Campaign by DDB Canada


To better inform millennials about Canadian dairy and help clear up misconceptions they may have, Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), has launched a new campaign that takes an honest, candid approach to share truths about Canadian dairy products and the industry.

Developed by DDB Canada’s Toronto office the national campaign, “Honest. Canadian. Dairy.” reminds millennials of the positive aspects of Canadian dairy to help raise the day-to-day relevance of dairy products in millennials minds.

“There’s an opportunity to shift and change millennials perceptions about dairy products,” says Lucie Bérubé, acting director, marketing, DFC. “Canadian dairy products are considered a wholesome and natural source of nutrition by millennials; but this group shows some reluctance, versus older Canadians, to consume dairy products on a regular basis. The new campaign sets out to clarify misconceptions millennials may have.”

Accentuating both functional and emotional benefits associated with increasing usage of Canadian dairy, both English and French creative executions introduce dairy farmer characters, who share facts such as: there are no artificial growth hormones in milk that is produced in Canada, most Canadian dairy farms are family-run and span generations of dairy farmers; and most farmers keep under 100 cows.

“We wanted to be upfront with Canadians about what’s true and what’s not when it comes to Canadian dairy farming,” says Craig Ferguson, creative director, DDB Canada Toronto. “That carried over to the advertising. It felt natural to be upfront about the fact our ads were ads.”

Campaign creative includes television, social videos, out-of-home placements and Spotify audio advertising. The campaign launched at the end of January runs until March 2019 with Initiative responsible for the media strategy and buy.
