Morrisons - Fresh growth
After acquiring Safeway in 2004, Morrisons experienced a seemingly inexorable three year decline in its market share. This case study on film from the 2008 IPA Effectiveness Awards shows how advertising greatly improved perceptions of Morrisons food quality, which was the biggest issue holding the brand back. To resume growth, the strategy focused on the story hidden at the heart of Morrisons' 'Market Street' offer; more food is made and prepared fresh in-store every day than any other supermarket. The 'Fresh choice for you ' campaign used TV and print media to promote this difference. It reversed Morrison's three year market share decline and transformed it into Britain's fastest growing supermarket, generating an estimated payback of £13 per every £1 spent.

Coming from a business that didn’t believe in marketing, it’s astonishing that marketing communications led to a turnaround of its fortunes. By focusing on how they could be different, Morrisons changed people’s perceptions of the brand and, in doing so, also improved business performance.
