M&S new Irish ‘Farm to Foodhall’ Campaign – with Chef Mark Moriarty

The new campaign will follow Mark Moriarty as he visits M&S Select Farms across Ireland, speaking with the producers to identify how they deliver the highest Irish quality produce for M&S

M&S has launched its 2024 ‘Farm to Foodhall’ campaign, fronted by chef and M&S Food Ambassador Mark Moriarty. The campaign is the second iteration of Farm to Foodhall following its success in 2023.

The campaign will run across Irish broadcast, digital and OOH channels from April to September and will feature five Irish suppliers as Mark visits them to explore the lengths they go to, to deliver the highest quality M&S Irish produce, all the way from farm to Foodhall.

The campaign aims to highlight what makes M&S produce special in terms of quality and value, offering the very best of Irish food to customers.

Throughout the multimedia campaign, TV, digital and OOH ads will showcase Mark meeting with the M&S Irish producers behind the retailer’s top quality, 100% traceable Irish beef and Lamb, delicious fresh strawberries, instore freshly baked San Francisco Sourdough and enriched vitamin D and B6 Chestnut mushrooms.

The campaign kicks off the first phase today with Mark visiting M&S’ Irish berries supplier to learn how that great quality, fresh strawberries are specially picked using a specific technique that involves twisting them from the stem. The team on the farm look at the deep red colour and size before deciding whether or not the produce is M&S ready. The farm encourages a natural eco system in their greenhouses and use bees to pollinate the fruit for extra freshness and great taste.

This campaign further showcases M&S’ commitment to using Irish suppliers and expanding upon its existing range of products sourced from Ireland. Whether it’s top-quality premium meats from Irish farms, dairy products like artisan cheeses, or fresh fruits and vegetables grown on Irish soil customers can enjoy the best of what Ireland has to offer sourced to highest quality standards of M&S.

Customers will see the Farm to Foodhall campaign across TV, social, OOH, emails and in store.
