Gippsland Dairy celebrates the deliciousness of patience with ‘Slow Good’ platform via Special


Gippsland Dairy Yogurt is launching a new brand platform this week via Special, which celebrates the unique, time-consuming process by which it is crafted.


Says Andrew Noisette, head of marketing, Gippsland Dairy: “In a category and industry focused on quick production and lowest cost, Gippsland Dairy has been able to retain its award-winning texture and taste by keeping true to its unique production method. We’re thrilled to have unlocked a platform that we feel has all the ingredients to be impactful, memorable and help tell our story.”

Says Chris Ellis, creative director at Special: “In life, slow is typically something we avoid – it can be aggravating, stress inducing and, in some cases, downright disastrous. But our good mate, prolific writer and yogurt fiend, Voltaire said, ‘Perfection is gained by slow degrees; it requires the hand of time.’ He was onto something. Slow can be good.”

Leading with a series of films directed by Tim Bullock and voiced by Tiriel Mora, the campaign features acutely ‘slow bad’ life experiences — from a long goodbye to disembarking a plane — contrasted with the inappropriately blissful enjoyment of Gippsland ‘Slow Good’ yogurt.

Adds Ryan Fitzgerald, executive creative director, Special: “Long press releases are slow bad. So in short, slow is what makes Gippsland Dairy. We’ve captured this truth with a piece of sticky language that speaks to craft and taste. It’s a fun platform that will deliver chuckles and yogurt cravings for some time to come.”

The campaign continues across radio, Spotify, social, outdoor, digital and point-of-purchase.
