M&C Saatchi snatches £3 million Ribena from Grey

campaignlive.co.uk, Friday, 01 April 2005 01:01PM

M&C Saatchi is replacing Grey London on GlaxoSmithKline's Ribena business, with a brief to extend the brand's appeal.

The new agency's first task will be to launch Ribena Really Light, a replacement for the Ribena Toothkind and Ribena Light sub-brands. Budgets are undisclosed, although GSK has traditionally supported Ribena with an annual spend of more than £3 million.

GSK has been trying to extend Ribena's appeal beyond mothers ever since the controversy over the health claims made for Toothkind. The new line is intended to turn Ribena into a more potent rival to Britvic's Robinsons Fruit Shoot and to compete with Coca-Cola in convenience-store fridges.
