Tina Moore, Organic Brand Manager, Tesco
"We were delighted to work with the OTB to deliver our 7,500 #OrganicUnboxed recipe packs to customers. It's the first time we have worked with bloggers for this type of activity. The feedback was excellent. We've had people engaging with our customer services to say thank you and lots of positive social media engagement."
Tracey Mattock, Marketing Manager, Greenvale
"The OTB have been invaluable. We were really delighted to be involvedwith #OrganicUnboxed with our potatoes and have the chance to work with bloggers. Even if you are an unbranded product, you can get involved in the OTB's campaign. We did and it's really paid off."
Nadia Morse, Marketing Manager at Doves Farm
"We were delighted to be part of the Madeleine Shaw #OrganicUnboxed film with the OTB this year. With the views of the film being over 1.5m, it's helped boost our brand recognition and tell the story behind the benefits of organic. We are really pleased with the impressions and engagement Doves Farm has had with the campaign.”
Lynette Sinclair, Managing Director of Tideford
"The OTB team sent our new Miso paste to 11 top bloggers as part of the #OrganicUnboxed challenge. It's now been tried and tested and had rave reviews from them. The OTB has been invaluable in both helping the right people know about our new product - for example getting us into Stylist Magazine - and reaching more people with their 90k plus social media following.”
Louis Smith, Marketing Executive, Social & content Creation at Yeo Valley
"I saw the concept of the OrganicUnboxed film and thought we could have some fun with it. It's a great campaign and it was very easy to make a simple film that reflected our brand. We've been really pleased with the film - so far it's had 5k+ views and counting.”
