FLAVOR YOUR LIFE: THE SIGNIFCANCE OF A LOGO
The name of the new campaign ‘Flavor your Life’, suggests the concept of living in harmony. This is an idea that Unaprol holds close to their heart and wants to share with consumers to improve their quality of life, starting right from the table … Extra virgin olive oil is not only a condiment to enhance the flavors of our dishes, but it is also very beneficial to our health. The logo is meant to represent all of these concepts …
When you first see the logo, the eye primarily perceives and recognizes the shape of an olive tree which is a clear reference to olive oil. When you take a closer look, you notice that the branches of the tree are actually four human figures. These figures, symbolize harmonious physical form to outline a state of good health. They are all emerging from a single trunk and have their arms upraised giving life to leaves and olives.
The tree in this logo symbolizes life itself that joins us all as a community, and if seasoned with joy and harmony, will allow us to produce great works and flourish like a tree when the fruits ripen.
The campaign ‘Olive oil and olives – European quality’, promoted by the European Commission & the country of Italy and realized by Unaprol was launched to promote awareness and the consumption of European high quality extra virgin olive oil and olives, in partner countries, through the diffusion of appropriate information about the quality of the product, its organoleptic characteristics, its usage in cooking, traceability and European quality acknowledgments (Bio, DOP and IGP).
The project provides for the realization of promotion and ommunication activities in the USA and Canada during the period 2011-2014.
This strategy involves the creation of very detailed actions to focus on one well-defined and well-focused target type in the USA and Canada for the implementation of initiatives. The program will focus primarily on the relationship with the distribution in the countries concerned and promotional activities will subsequently be conducted to encourage testing of the products. Finally, communication initiatives will be undertaken to consolidate consumption.
THE TARGET GROUPS
The target groups are homogeneous groups identified on the basis of type of function that the product will meet and, with regards to the final consumer, for relevant socio-demographic characteristics. The following are those identified for the purposes of this program:
– opinion leaders and opinion makers
– distribution of buyers and traders
