Arc secures Nestle agency roster place

LONDON - Arc Worldwide London has won a place on Nestle's £12.6m confectionery roster without a pitch.

Arc joins Joshua, Billington Cartmell, Logistics and Chemistry on the FMCG giant's confectionery promotions and customer relationship marketing roster.

The agency was appointed on the strength of a one-off project aimed at driving sales of Nestle's children's range.

Nestle is focusing on CRM and below-the-line activity to promote its products. Its £2m online KitKash promotion, through RMG:Connect and MindShare, entered its second phase last year.

At the end of last year, Nestle appointed Joshua to handle its £15m CRM activity across its beverage brands over three years.

In 2003, Arc developed Masterfoods' £10m Chocollect CRM drive for brands including Mars, Twix, Snickers and Bounty.
