  • Constellation Brands

Corona Premier and Corona Familiar – the first major Corona innovations in over 25 years – are already exceeding sales expectations, according to Constellation Brands. The beer marketer is also experimenting with premium refresher Corona Refresca in test markets. Corona Premier and Corona Familiar were launched last March in Constellation Brands´ major Hispanic markets. Corona Refresca, which comes in guava lime and passionfruit lime flavors, is marketed as a "premium spiked refresher" targeting women from 25 through 29 years old. The Svedka seltzer borrows the name of Svedka vodka, which is owned by Constellation. Corona Refresca was recently introduced in a handful of local markets, before deciding to go national, supported by English and Spanish language tv campaigns. Constellation took a similar approach with its new low-calorie Corona Premier brand, which was sold in regional markets before going national this year. The Corona Portfolio is brewed in Mexico by Constellation Brands and imported to the US by the company.

  • California Milk Processor Board (CMPB)

Gallegos United has released its first work for the California Milk Processor Board (CMPB) after winning the account from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, Mediapost has reported. The new campaign, called "You Can Always Count on Milk," shows a lack of demographic checkpoints as the brand wants to reflect that today's market doesn't need demographic silos in order to be "culturally attune." The first phase of the new campaign includes TV, with spots both in English and Spanish, as well as a newly redesigned gotmilk.com. The campaign will run across online video, social media, retail point-of-sale, mobile push notifications, and, for the first time, search engine buys to link up with parents seeking questions like "how much milk can I serve my child?" or "is milk healthy for me? "The iconic Got Milk? tagline will continue to be placed at the end of the ads due to its "strong brand equity.”
