- Chewy by Quaker
Quaker, owned by PepsiCo, has launched a review for its snack-bars brand Chewy. Quaker traditionally has had one agency for both its cereal and snack bar brands, but now, it is looking for different agencies for the businesses. EnergyBBDO, which had handled both brands, will continue to work on the hot cereal business. The call for a review comes as Chewy is losing ground to competitors like the quickly growing Kind brand, which has overtaken Chewy as the third-largest brand in the category. Quaker spent an estimated US$59 million on measured media for all its brands in 2014, according to Kantar Media.
