Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Lactel, a milk brand based in France, has recently appointed Kingdom Digital to handle the company’s social duties for its Malaysian market, following a pitch concluded in June that three agencies vied for.
Through the appointment, Kingdom Digital will be increasing social media engagement and spreading awareness about the credibility and heritage of Lactel as a leading milk brand. Said work will start this December, and will last for a year of work.
“We’re focused on building trust with our consumers. There’s a need to increase regional brand awareness for our growing portfolio of top-quality products. Through Kingdom Digital’s social media strategy, we believe we can connect with consumers organically and make a meaningful impact as a lifestyle brand,” Lactate said in a press statement.
The company also added that the agency stood out with their strong, creative pitch and well-rounded teamwork.
“Their consumer-centric and lifestyle-driven content strategy fit the kind of messaging we sought to put forward. Rather than a promotional or hard-sell approach, we aim to provide value in what is an integral part of our consumer’s everyday life — food,” they added.
Meanwhile, Mior Anwar, strategic planner at Kingdom Digital said, “Our consumer insights showed that yogurt plays multiple roles within the consumer’s lifestyle. Whether for the sake of health, satisfying a craving, or experimenting with recipes, it’s a versatile pantry item. Due to that, we wanted to emphasize how Lactel combines healthy goodness with convenience, making it a marvel addition to any meal, for any palate.”
Kingdom Digital has been winning several mandates this year, including mineral water brand Spritzer, Korean beauty brand MAKEHEAL, and Malaysian telco TIME dotCom, through its newest media subsidiary Rockstar Digital.
Sim Pei Xuan, senior digital content writer and Yee Sook Yan, digital art director at Kingdom Digital both further elaborated, “Lactel really is a mighty little marvel. We wanted to express how yogurt is one versatile ingredient that packs a punch full of nutritional benefits with endless possibilities to enjoy it. With a modern and minimalistic creative direction, alongside fresh and inspiring content, we are confident this approach will set the brand apart from industry competitors.”
