With sales in pasty declining YOY, Pampas Pastry needed a way to stabilise its declining sales figures and encourage more people to make pies.

Red Agency worked with our sister agencies Havas Worldwide and Havas Media to launch ‘Re-pie-cling’.  An integrated campaign with a focus on PR and Social Media, we aimed to reduce food wastage by using leftovers for the filling of a pie.

We identified celebrity sustainability chef, Matt Stone, as the campaign ambassador providing credibility on the issue of food waste and adding media value. Watch our intro clip -



We worked with Matt Stone to create a suite of Re-pie-cling video recipes. Our secret ingredient was data! We conducted Galaxy Research to identify what foods Australians threw away most and analysed Google trends to reveal top search data related to leftovers. Watch our Curry Puffs video –

With a limited budget, earned media was a key driver for awareness with tactics including:

1.News Media Outreach: Galaxy Research to create a news story around the behaviours of Australians towards sustainability in the home.
2.Lifestyle Media Outreach: Profiling Matt Stone and our Re-pie-cling recipes.
