Maryland campaign heralds ‘year of the cookie’

Maryland Cookies

Maryland will be back on screens next month, when Burton’s kicks-off a new five-month-long £1m marketing campaign for its £50m cookie brand.

A month of TV advertising commences on February 4, supported by social media and in-store activity. High impact POS will be accompanied by a major sales push in convenience.

The ‘What would you do for a Maryland?’ campaign comes as the brand records a 10% rise in sales on the past year, growing three times faster than the total biscuit market.

Mandy Bobrowski, UK & Ireland Marketing Director at Burton’s Biscuit Company, said: “This campaign will not only champion our core 10g cookie, but will also drive sales of the wider portfolio including Maryland Mini’s – the no.1 Kids Mini brand – and our new Big & Chunky lines.

“It’s the year of the cookie, and retailers can look forward to growing sales with Maryland in 2018.”
