Mr Kipling: Reinventing a brand icon
How do you stem a ten-year decline in brand share when you're shackled to a relic of the past? For Mr Kipling, the answer was to walk a strategic tightrope between cremation and re-incarnation, rebuilding the brand and its (in)famous icon. Since re-launch market share has witnessed 8% growth year on year. Average annual number of packs per person is up 17.6% and annual spend up by £1.07 per person - not inconsiderable for a brand that's bought by 52% of UK households!
