Fikerte Woldegiorgis, Foods Marketing Director, Unilever UK&I commented*: “Increasingly more consumers are keen to cut down on meat for various reasons including health, environmental impact, or animal welfare. However, they just don’t know how to do that without sacrificing on taste or satisfaction. With Knorr’s rich flavor expertise, we are on mission to make meat-free meals an indulgence, not a sacrifice”

“Veganuary is a great time to give eating less meat a try, which is why we’re investing in a mass media campaign and returning to TV screens for the first time in three years. And, with Britain’s best-known meat lovers, the Hairy Bikers, at the helm, providing scrumptious recipe inspiration we’re proving that meat-free can still be mouthwatering! So, here’s to making Veganuary the tastiest yet with Knorr Veggie Stocks!”

Alex Okada, Global Creative Director at the creative agency, MullenLowe, which created the advert commented: “Knorr is a household name in the UK and has been behind delicious meals for generations. So, to pair them up with another household favourite in the Hairy Bikers, experts in tasty veggie recipes, it gave us a great platform to let the ‘Cheat on Meat’ message really sing. In what could have been a tricky production, given world events, it was great to have a client partner so determined to make great work come rain or shine.”
