More Reasons to shop at Morrisons: Wavemaker UK, Immediate and Mail Metro Media collaborate to showcase Morrisons’ Market Street

Wednesday 5 June 2024

Wavemaker UK has collaborated with Immediate and Mail Metro Media on a multi-channel media and content partnership for Morrisons to shine a light on the expertise and service that Morrisons’ Market Street – its fresh counter produce concept – offers to customers. The partnership signifies two exciting media element firsts.

A five-month campaign brings to life all the reasons and all the great benefits of Morrisons’ Market Street, making it a destination for inspiration for cooks and customers passionate about food, across the breadth of the country. If it’s fresh fish you are after, cleaned and filleted; a specific cut of beef, enough for two; or you want the freshest crunchiest carrots grown by British farmers all year round, then Market Street is the place for you.

A central part of the campaign will see Morrisons becoming the first official supermarket partner of Good Food for the month of July. This will see digital advertorials, display takeovers and shoppable skins, a 16 page editorial feature in the Magazine with further supporting activity sitting across olive.

A dedicated Market Street Tab on the Good Food Website marks the first instance a brand has appeared in this format – an exclusive during the campaign period. On this tab, working alongside Good Food’s expert culinary team, Morrisons will showcase 40 unique new recipes with integrated editorial content, leveraging the extensive product and fresh produce knowledge of Morrisons’ Market Street colleagues—such as butchers, fishmongers, and bakers—along with the creative recipe skills of the Good Food team.

The activity will also include newsletters to Good Food subscribers, a video content series and podcast host reads with Good Food experts. All supported by social and display activity driving to Morrisons’ Market Street hub on the Good Food website. The media activations will flex and and constantly refresh in line with seasonal moments.

It doesn’t end there, activity will be amplified by Mail Metro Media, home to the UK’s most engaged newsbrands, using its extensive reach to further bolster awareness of the campaign and drive consumers towards Morrisons and Market Street.

An eye-catching national cover-wrap of Metro will be amplified by a host of native articles, recipe columns and display advertising across print and digital platforms including, MailOnline and The Mail on Sunday’s YOU magazine.
