GB: Marmite launches new ad campaign – Are people noticing the brand’s advertising?

British food brand Marmite’s latest ad campaign plays on the findings of a recent study that babies in the womb might be able to experience what a mother is tasting. The brand’s TV spot shows expectant parents reacting to ultrasound scans of their babies, 20 minutes after the mothers were served Marmite samples. Created by agency adam&eveDDB, the campaign currently runs on TV, OOH, print and social ads.

Have Britons noticed more Marmite ads since the campaign began?

According to YouGov BrandIndex - which tracks consumer sentiment towards thousands of brands daily - the brand’s Ad Awareness has ticked up since the launch of the new Marmite ad.

The metric - which measures the share of consumers that notice a brand’s advertising - steadily grew over the last two weeks of April, peaking at 5% on 28 April 2023.
