Megan Harrison, marketing controller for Warburtons, explained: “2012 is an exciting year for Warburtons and bakery as a whole. We are investing heavily in marketing and NPD within the Breakfast occasion and as the UK’s leading bakery brand, with a wide range of high-quality best-selling bakery products, Warburtons is in great position to help create excitement around this occasion and drive further sales. We’re looking forward to seeing the growth it produces for the category, the Warburtons brand and our customers.”

James Hayr, head of specialist sales at Microsoft Advertising, added: “We’re excited to be working with Warburtons & Mindshare Media UK to help Britain enjoy a tastier breakfast. We worked closely with Magic FM to produce an integrated cross media partnership producing original, useful and entertaining content for the MSN user. The idea was to help Warburtons ‘own’ mornings on MSN, helping the brand to associate itself with nutritious breakfasts and good mornings.”

TV activity will run from Wednesday (15 February) with advertising handled by Rainey Kelly Y&R with media by Mindshare and the website developed by Real Time Media.
