DS Smith Packaging
The company had pioneered a number of innovative packaging solutions and is one of the forerunners of Retail Ready Packaging (RRP). With the benefits of RRP already well known to packaging professionals – carbon, cost and time savings, better use of space on the shelf, faster product identification back of store and brand enhancement with consumers – the challenge for Bray Leino’s B2B & Corporate PR team was to promote RRP to marketers to ensure it was addressed early in the packaging conversation. And on a wider level, DS Smith Packaging wanted a lead on the competition in terms of Share of Voice in the media and to showcase its innovation.
The B2B & Corporate PR team identified that thought leadership would form the backbone of the PR campaign. Responding to wider industry issues and showing both empathy and a wealth of experience would be crucial to securing media cut through. A series of media pitches on RRP issues and benefits were developed and sold in to target media backed up with case studies to showcase innovation, packaging industry trends and commercial benefit. Key spokespeople were also briefed and positioned for interview helping to build individuals and the wider company profile.
