In 2017 Zespri decided to create a geolocation campaign in Waze, the 1st ranked app in Latin America, above Google Maps and Foursquare, with more than 20 million unique users.
The main objectives of the campaign were to increase the recognition of the Zespri brand by 25% and Sun Gold kiwi by 13%, increase the market presence by 25% and facilitate the location of the product.
The campaign lasted a month and Waze users received a notification every time they passed near a supermarket that had Zespri kiwifruit for sale. The program was accompanied by content in digital and social media and on its website. Also with printings at points of sale.
The project resulted in 196 thousand navigations to locate Zespri kiwifruit in supermarkets and more than 118 thousand saved locations. Market expansion to 4 new cities in the Mexican Republic and 3 new supermarket chains in Latin America. This campaign has been a success story on Google for new categories.
