Hellmann’s revamps Salad Dressings portfolio with launch of brand new range

This summer, Hellmann’s is set to reinvigorate the category with a relaunch of its entire Salad Dressings portfolio, all made Caesar with Smoked Garlic (2)with natural ingredients. Backed by a substantial £2million marketing investment, spanning OOH, video on demand and social media, this will be the first time Hellmann’s Salad Dressings have been supported by a full ATL media campaign.

Rolling out now, the new and improved line up will offer consumers a variety of classic and modern flavours to suit a range of tastes, and tap into the millions of salad food occasions that take place in the UK every year[1]. As part of the relaunch, Hellmann’s is bringing two innovative new dressings to the market with Sesame and Soy and Coconut and Lime, which have been developed to attract shoppers desiring more experiential ingredients in their salads. Over 70% of the range features vegetarian and gluten-free credentials, to also target the growing number of consumers following specialist diets.[2]


Jon Walbancke, Brand Building Director at Unilever UK and Ireland, comments: “Salads are in exponential growth, but currently just 37% are consumed with an ambient accompaniment[3]. Unilever sees a huge opportunity in this meal segment, and the launch of Hellmann’s Salad Dressings will drive incremental sales by not only offering a huge variety when it comes to flavour, but addressing consumer concerns by using natural ingredients[4]. We are currently the biggest brand in the sub-category[5] and this updated offering from Hellmann’s demonstrates brand leadership and commitment to our consumers.”
