The agency, which pitched with the communications planning agency Rise, beat St Luke's, Craik Jones Watson Mitchell Voelkel and Iris in a pitch managed by COI.

The agency has been tasked with promoting milk through an integrated brief comprising PR and advertising. The ads, which will be part-funded by the EU, will break next year and run for a minimum of three years featuring a brand identity developed by design agency Uffindell West.

Milk has a history of hugely popular advertising, including the Milk Marketing Board's famous "Accrington Stanley" spot of the 1980s, which featured two young boys making reference to a conversation about milk with Liverpool FC footballer Ian Rush.

A spokesman for Freud, which acquired DFGW in May, confirmed it had won the business, but declined to comment further.
