AUCKLAND, Today: Anchor has launched its new brand platform, Taste of Home, with a fully integrated brand campaign (from TBWA, Sweet Shop, Mediacom, Pead, and Raydar) to give Kiwis the ‘feeling of home’ no matter where they are. 

Fonterra marketing director Mike Boness said: “The platform acknowledges Anchor’s role in New Zealand home life for more than 130 years, but also captures its enduring role to this day, through telling a modern Kiwi story, which is something Anchor is well-known for through historic brand campaigns like the Anchor family.

“The platform also needed to be broad enough to stretch beyond just advertising, holding together important CSR initiatives including KickStart Breakfast, a programme supporting Kiwi communities and their futures, as well as sustainability programmes looking after our homeland.

“The new Anchor Taste of Home brand platform focuses on home: encompassing the togetherness of Kiwis; the physical place where we feel comfort and support; and our love and appreciation for New Zealand.  

“The platform also needed to be broad enough to stretch beyond just advertising, holding together important CSR initiatives.”

“It’s been six years since Anchor Masterbrand has been on air and as a brand that’s sat on the kitchen benches and dining tables of our homes since 1886, the new platform needed to clearly communicate the role the brand plays in our everyday lives.

“For Anchor, this means championing the feeling of home for all Kiwis, however they define it and its importance of connecting us to what is most important – home.

“To bring Taste of Home to life, Anchor launched the platform with a 30sec tvc to tell a heartfelt story, injecting warmth into the Anchor brand.

TBWA CCO Shane Bradnick said: “Anchor is an iconic brand that has been part of New Zealand homes since 1886 – A Taste of Home as a creative platform acknowledges and celebrates the important place Anchor holds in all Kiwis – old and new – hearts and homes.

“We are really proud of the teams who have worked so hard to produce this first chapter in the new Anchor story.”

The agency network that brought the campaign to life includes TBWA, Mediacom, Pead, Raydar and Digital Arts Network (DAN).
