    The Consumer Insight Award recognises businesses who have demonstrated how research and the identification of consumer insight has led to an improved or new understanding of the consumer in a particular market, leading to commercial growth.

    Glanbia Ireland has been shortlisted here for Mymilkman.ie which delivers a platform where consumers can find their local milkman and manage their milk orders online.

    The company used a data driven and regional approach to target new customers resulting in an almost 50% increase in online traffic during the month of the campaign.

    The results have shown that this insight-led approach to advertising successfully allowed Glanbia Ireland to recruit new customers, delivering recurring revenue and volumes.

    Glanbia’s fresh flavoured milk offering, Mooju, has earned them a place on the shortlist for the Digital Marketing Award recognises companies that have effectively used digital platforms to strengthen brand performance and enhance the profitability of the company.

    Mooju’s highly successful digital-only marketing communications led to increased demand for new flavours to complement its popular chocolate milk as a key driver of sales.

    Finally, having spotted an opportunity to take advantage of the growing demand for macronutrient friendly sources of protein for fitness consumers, Glanbia created Avonmore Protein Milk and this product is recognised in the Innovation category.

    Overall award winners will be announced at a Gala Luncheon at the RDS Concert Hall.
