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.

From Kenya to Canada: The Story of Kenya’s Only Ice Hockey Team



In Kenya, there is only one ice hockey team, and they have nobody to play against. Every Wednesday and Sunday, the Kenya Ice Lions take to the first-ever ice rink in East and Central Africa: a 1,400-square-metre rink at the Panari Sky Center Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. Located next to Nairobi National Park, is where the Ice Lions take to the rink and play the game they love.

In Canada, it is sometimes taken for granted that Canadians can always find someone to grab a stick, find some ice and play a game. Tim Hortons heard the story about the Kenya Ice Lions and decided to share our love of the game by bringing them to the birthplace of hockey.

“In Canada - and as a company - Hockey is part of our DNA,” says Jorge Zaidan, Head of Marketing, Tim Hortons Canada. “We are so inspired by the story of the Lions. Despite having no other teams to play against, the players on the Kenya Ice Lions’ passion for the game is unwavering. Their shared passion and love of the game knows no borders.”

Moved by their love for Canada’s favourite sport, Tim Hortons flew 12 members of the senior Ice Lions team to Canada to have the opportunity to finally play their first game ever against another team. After dressing in brand new CCM hockey equipment and personalized jerseys, they discovered they were in for an even bigger surprise: hockey superstars Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon were joining them on the ice as teammates.

“I was honoured to be able to join the Ice Lions as they played their first game against another team,” said Sidney Crosby, captain of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins. “One of the things I love about hockey is how it’s able to reach so many people from so many countries around the world and bring them together.”

“While we played alongside the Ice Lions for their first game, we know it won’t be their last,” said Colorado Avalanche star, Nathan MacKinnon. “The team’s genuine passion and excitement for hockey is contagious – they were amazing teammates and it was great to play with them.”

“It is a dream to not only have the chance to play in Canada, but to play – for the first time – in full gear alongside two of the greatest players of the game,” says Benard Azegere, captain of the Kenya Ice Lions.“ When we first started playing in Kenya, we didn’t even have full equipment, but now not only do we have that, we can say we’ve played a real game with some All-Star teammates.”

Tim Hortons made a donation to Kenya’s Youth Hockey League to help ensure that the Ice Lions’ passion for the sport lives on for the next generation. To see the full video of the Kenya Ice Lions hockey game with Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon, please visit https://youtu.be/CqYfhY5gVl8.
