Walkers use our cheese

Have you seen the new Walkers advert?  Catchy isn’t it?  And isn’t the cheese they use in the closing shot just an absolutely perfect specimen?  Well, it would be, because it just happens to be Keen’s.

Walkers are using a Somerset cheese in their Cheese & Onion crisps to help with the authenticity of their flavours.  No, our cheese isn’t going to the packets, but we were able to help their cause in raising awareness of how great Somerset Cheese is.

A representative contacted us a short while ago looking to purchase a couple of truckles they could photograph and use as visuals within the campaign (because let’s face it our cheese is a good looking cheese).   They then also passed the truckles to their modellers to reproduce and create an entire cheese store, finally they needed some shelving which we delivered to Bristol.  During conversations about how we could help we did offer our facilities as a location for them to film however they were too far down the line with plans.

So, just in case you’ve missed it I’ve included the video below.  Happy viewing, and keep your eyes open for the cheese store at 0.17 and the closing shot 1.01.
