The Lurpak® “Weave Your Magic” campaign has won a British Arrows award for the best International campaign. British Arrows Awards is one of the UK’s most prestigious advertising recognitions.

Arla’s premium butter brand, Lurpak®, triumphed in the international category of the British Arrows Awards. The award for the Lurpak® 'Weave your Magic' campaign stands as a proof that Lurpak® understands how passionate consumers really are about food.

“We are very proud that Lurpak® can play – and win – against other well-known global brands. Our goal was to inspire the food lovers worldwide and to celebrate the position of Lurpak® as a champion of good food around the world,” says Laurence Fischer, Vice President and responsible for Arla’s Global BSM category, including Lurpak®.

The success is a very important step towards Arla’s goal of positioning Lurpak® as a truly global brand.

The award in the international category was made possible as a result of the excellent strategic work done by the Lurpak® team and the outstanding craft done by the agency Wieden+Kenedy.
Also nominated in the international category were global brands such as Vodafone, Eurostar (high-speed railway service) and Unilever’s personal care brand, Dove.
