A marcomms agency is conducting an online survey to determine consensus on whether iSnack 2.0 was a PR ploy.

Agency BCM is conducting a survey on whether Australians believe that choosing iSnack 2.0 was simply ‘Step 2′ in a planned publicity stunt.

“It undoubtedly has been a tough week for Kraft in Australia. A decision to launch a new product under the iconic Vegemite brand would not have been taken lightly. Much has been speculated by industry insiders about whether the name was deliberately chosen as a short term stunt to generate marketing noise and community outrage, or whether it was nothing more than a massive error of judgement on the part of the US owned Kraft. We thought it would be interesting to know what the Australian public thought.” said Kevin Moreland, BCM partner.
