EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Monday: For the first time since 2018, a new Kaló brand campaign from Meadow Fresh, in collaboration with DDB Group Aotearoa has been launched  to highlight Kaló credentials as Greek yoghurt – “made the real way”.

Danielle Dyson, head of dairy marketing at Goodman Fielder, said: “In the hero film, I Want Real, we meet an unlikely hero called K729-33 (Kay for short), who among other things, dreams of tasting KALÓ’s thick, creamy, and authentically made Greek yoghurt.

“Kay is a sentient supermarket self-checkout machine, tormented all her short life by a display of Kaló yoghurts directly across from her, despite the fact she is unable to taste them.

“Who better to tell us than a sentient self-checkout machine who’s never so much as tasted it?”


“Kaló is made using fresh New Zealand milk and a culture originating from the Greek island of Crete. It’s strained the authentic way, providing New Zealanders with the real deal – which is exactly what ‘I Want Real’ is all about.”

Matt Williams, creative director at DDB Group Aotearoa said: “Kay is all of us. In a world that’s becoming increasingly more fake by the day – AI, social media, the Kardashians’ faces – Kay craves a life that’s a little more real and authentic, like we all do.

“And you can’t get much more real and authentic than Kaló Greek yoghurt. Who better to tell us that, over and over again, than a sentient self-checkout machine who’s never so much as tasted it?”

I Want Real launches as an integrated campaign.
