Over the years, Bonne Maman has become the market's leading brand in France and the number one import brand of jellies and jams in several countries. The success of Bonne Maman is based on a wide range of high quality products and know-how.
Dispatch and manage a team of trained brand ambassadors in 53 stores to sample new products while sharing key messaging across the Quebec province
Pushing product sales, brand recognition and encouraging repurchase are the main objectives. By standing out from other samplings with a modern and colourful kiosk, a banner over 6 feet high and ambassadors rigorously trained in sales techniques as well as product knowledge, we make sure consumers retain key messaging while strengthening the bond with distributors. Through constant communication with grocery stores paired with a friendly approach and unquestionable results, the relationship between Bonne Maman and targeted grocery stores will only get stronger over time. Keeping brand ambassadors accountable with innovative techniques, positive reinforcement, learning strategies, team spirit and incentives is also essential in the success of such a program.
