We engaged with PLAY to help understand what truly drove the choices for 'dinner' amongst the broad Australian audience. We needed a foundational study to inform action


across a wide product portfolio - for both current rationalisation, review, and future scoping & innovation. The approach was a great mix of robustness, efficiency and defensibility - enabling the final data to be cascaded across the business in ways that were both creative and engaging, as a result of the insights provided. We were able to action this expansive research not just in terms of brand and portfolio decision making, but also as a tool to gain alignment across several divisions of the business and to internally speak a consistent consumer-based language. This fundamental study informed the business at many points of the consumer journey to dinner and continues to be the study that keeps on giving 3 years later, due to the art and science in which the study was executed, analysed and database built.
