WEEK VAN DE FRIET

The last week of November is dedicated to something that is close to the heart of every self-respecting Belgian. Our national pride: freshly baked, delicious fries from ‘de frituur’, which is one of Belgium’s most famous cultural and gastronomic outputs!

During that week, our client VLAM celebrates – for the 20th time since its start – the ‘Week van de Friet’. During this edition we teamed up with Supermachine, and opted to put the spotlight on our cultural and culinary heritage.

tribute to our Belgian pride

Something The cultural heritage fact you can take quite literally as this year’s actions during the #weekvandefriet paid an extensive tribute to our Belgian pride. In five cities, famous statues paid their own tribute to celebrated ‘frietjes van de frituur’. By showing up in these unexpected places, we wanted to remind everyone of the pride we rightly cherish for our Belgian fries. From national to regionalinfluencer posts to newspapers, television and radio, it was all there.

A post-test by market research agency iVox confirmed the effectiveness of the campaign. The results showed that 68% of respondents noticed the campaign. Appreciation was scored at 69%, which is the highest score since 2012, and the third best since 2004. A whopping 44% of respondents visited their local “frituur” after seeing the campaign. We can even state that our approach ensured that #weekvandefriet was placed on the radar aross all relevant age groups.

So we can definitely state that our approach ensured that #weekvandefriet was placed on the radar across all age groups.
