10.2 Promotions Committee – Marieta Human
Joint venture campaigns with retail groups SAPPO partnered with Shoprite, Checkers, the Fruit and Veg City group and Woolworths to run several campaigns focusing on the great value of pork.
All these campaigns had the objective of teach- ing consumers that a big range of pork cuts was available, o ering the best meat value that money can buy. The Checkers and Woolworths campaigns were aimed at making consumers aware of the ever-expanding selection of value-added pork dishes and cuts and the pork options for home meal replacements (i.e. Heat & Eat dishes, Ready to Roast, Ready to Wok, etc.).
The above campaigns were always supported with good exposure in newspapers, digital com- munication, radio, knock-and-drops and, in some cases, television spots, as well as in-store cooking demonstrations and recipes supplied by SAPPO.
Chef competitions
For the past four years, SAPPO had been the ingre- dient sponsor for the meat component of two chef competitions, the Inter Hotel Challenge (IHC) and the One and Only Reach for Young Stars (O&O).
Both these had provided great opportunities for making signi cant inroads into the awareness and understanding of, and respect for, South African pork among executive chefs and trainers in cook- ery schools.
