On social media, mentions of Semper and formula increased by more than 700 per cent in the campaign’s first week.


Loving baby formula – a viral success

The challenge

Parents of small children are constantly bombarded with new findings and messages concerning baby food. With so many myths floating around, it is not easy to separate fact from fiction. Semper continuously monitors the latest research so that it can always offer the best and most natural products. In early 2014, Semper wanted to communicate the fact that it had changed all its baby formula and porridge recipes, replacing the controversial palm oil with milk fat, which is shown to have positive qualities.

The solution

Spoon produced the ’Loving formula’ concept. Aimed at Semper’s target audience, the campaign consisted of clear and knowledgeable expertise, but presented in a warm and playful tone that evoked an emotional response.

To create engagement and viral distribution, an Instagram competition and several documentary films with formula-loving children were added. The campaign was launched in March 2014 through Semper’s own channels: Familjeliv, Facebook and Youtube.
