Objectives:

The overall goal of the communication campaign is to promote EU agricultural produce in China to ultimately increase the market share of EU agricultural produce in the target market.

  • Inform business and consumer audiences, as well as media and influencers, about the merits of EU agricultural produce – safety, quality, authenticity, and of the high standards applicable to the production methods in the Union;
  • Create positive awareness of EU agricultural produce among business and consumer audiences, with the aim of increasing the consumption, use and import of these products;
  • Increase the awareness and recognition of Union quality schemes, with a specific focus on geographical indications and organics in view of the EU-China Geographical Indications (GIs) Agreement and the EU “Farm to fork” strategy.

Strategy:

Just like Europeans, Chinese people have a special relation with food, believing that food not only needs to be nutritious but must also look appealing, colourful and vibrant. With a colourful visual identity, this campaign builds on the fact that EU agricultural produce already enjoy a positive perception in China. The campaign invites consumers and businesses to include EU agricultural produce in their daily lives. It will also raise awareness about the exceptional quality, safety measures and high production standards associated with these products.
