Carbonell Olys

From an unknown oil to a fan base for healthy children’s nutrition. Carbonell introduction campaign: +22% more volume


Introduce the new oil blend Carbonell Olys, and develop the international brand proposition ‘healthy’ in the Netherlands.


Everyone wants children to eat healthily. The new oil blend from Carbonell (with grapeseed, soy, rapeseed, fish and olive oils) was specially developed for this purpose. The fatty acids in Olys help children grow better. This insight pointed the way to a clearly positioned campaign.
