Food brand Yeo Valley Organic has rolled out connected packaging across all products as part of the new ‘Put Nature First’ brand platform. Working with connected consumer agency SharpEnd, Yeo Valley Organic says it can now engage directly with consumers through its most scalable media asset.

Consumers will be able to use their smartphones to scan the ’Moo-R’ QR codes, which can be found on over 100 million products, linking to its ‘Yeokens’ reward program and bringing to life ongoing nature-led initiatives. Customers will have access to specific product information, brand content, and future promotions. According to the company, the dynamic digital experiences adjust based on the product, customer location, and the time of day.

Adrian Carne, managing director of Yeo Valley, said, “We’re pleased to bring our customers the next phase of experiences and rewards through this easy to use technology. Using QR codes across our product family creates fast and seamless access to fantastic rewards and stages our content about putting nature first.”

“We want to inspire others about the benefits of organic and how it’s one crucial factor in addressing the climate crisis. Our content will encourage everyone to put nature first in their own small way, whether that’s buying British organic dairy more often, reducing food waste or encouraging wildlife into their garden. It’s the little things that everyone can do to make a difference and that is what we’ll be highlighting in our connected packaging.”

Cameron Worth, founder of SharpEnd, added, “We are proud to bring Yeo Valley Organic closer than ever to their consumers.”

The campaign uses SharpEnd’s corresponding data and experience platform – – to issue, manage, and measure over 100 million identities and ensure each digital experience can be enhanced as the campaign evolves. Through analytics, Yeo Valley Organic can build consumer profiles and track engagement across the product portfolio.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
