The campaign, created by adam&eveDDB and Manning Gottlieb OMD, uses a selection of cameras including Go Pros to take viewers into its dairy and free range hen farms, showing their customers where their food comes from.

Breaking 11 April with 10 second teasers, followed by the first same day live TV ad from one of Waitrose’s dairy farms near Newbury on 15 April. One of the dairy cows will take centre stage in the ad by wearing a small, lightweight camera giving customers the opportunity to see the benefits of their environment for themselves.

The next same day TV will be filmed at one of Waitrose’s free-range hen farms near Marlborough. Footage will be recorded and aired the same day for TV and marks the first time a UK food retailer has streamed same day live content in its advertising.

A supporting digital OOH at the UK’s major train stations (including Waterloo Motion) and display campaign will 'live stream' footage from three different locations at the Waitrose Leckford Farm, including beehives, rapeseed and panoramic views of the countryside.

The print campaign will only use images of real Waitrose farms that have been taken within 24 hours of publication. A digital banner campaign will ‘live stream’ footage into a YouTube Masthead Takeover on Monday 18 April.
