Kallø, the organic stocks and rice cake brand owned by Wessanen UK, is partnering with the UK’s bestselling vegan authors BOSH! and BuzzFeed’s Tasty, to showcase its leading, organic stocks range with easy-to-follow recipes.
The new campaign aims to show consumers that super-tasty food doesn’t need to be complicated and that quality ingredients deserve to be paired with quality stock. It will reinforce the fact that Kallo stocks only contain carefully selected organic, good, honest ingredients - with no added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
Launching this week, and with the BOSH! campaign supported by Kallo media spend, the campaigns will reach a combined estimated audience of 19.8 million people, with the BOSH! campaign presented to its audience of 2.9 million followers and subscribers.
Kallø has partnered with these fashionable foodie influencers and platforms to inspire creativity in home-cooking through easy to follow content that can be streamed in the comfort of customer’s homes – whilst highlighting the versatility of its stocks portfolio.
BOSH! has created a range of digital content to showcase two new variants of Kallø’s plant-based stock cubes – Organic Umami and Organic Sriracha. BOSH! recipes include a vegan ‘seafood’ paella and a useful tip to increase the flavour of mashed potato, as well as an introduction to Kallø’s plant-based stocks range. These videos will feature across BOSH!’s popular Instagram and YouTube channels.
We’re super excited to be continuing our partnership with Kallø. As always, our mission is to show just how easy being plant-based can be, while also encouraging people to cook at home. Kallø’s new stock cubes are a magical ingredient that can really boost flavours in the kitchen.
BuzzFeed’s recipe platform, Tasty, has unveiled new dishes using Kallø’s core stock cubes, Organic Chicken and Organic Vegetable. Launching this week, Tasty’s recipes for a white bean and pulled chicken chilli and a vegetarian pumpkin and ricotta stuffed pasta, will be uploaded to its online webpage and social media channels, where they are expected to generate a minimum of 2.4 million views.
We could not be more excited to be working with Kallo for the first time, adding a delicious dose of Kallo flavour to some nutritious and easy to make Tasty dishes. Our audience is becoming more inspired by healthy content so we hope to see more partnerships like this one with Kallo in the future.
Kallø’s overall stock cube sales are up 22% YOY (Kantar Worldpanel, 52 w/e data to Sep 2020) and this campaign is set to bolster both its core and plant-based ranges, as consumer trends and dining habits are boosted by the surge in scratch cooking following more time spent at home.
We are pleased to continue our partnership with BOSH! and join forces with Tasty. BOSH! are experts at what they do - creating delicious recipes and inspiring consumers with creative ways to use our plant-based stock cubes. It’s our first time collaborating with Tasty, but we were really impressed with the platform and the ability to deliver great taste appeal and awareness for our core range.
