How Aldi won Christmas with the help of a humble carrot
Despite having a winning formula as a deep-discounter supermarket Aldi still had an issue at Christmas. Its core shoppers spent disproportionately more than average on making their Christmas special, but they didn’t spend it all with Aldi, trading up-and-out into other retailers. By creating and sticking with Kevin the Carrot over Christmas 2016-2017, Aldi stayed more top-of-mind for its shoppers, built an emotional connection with the brand and showcased its range. Aldi reduced its Christmas dip in market share and became the fastest growing supermarket of Christmas 2016 and 2017.
