Sainsbury’s has launched a new nationwide campaign this week – #CheckYouOut, created by Ogilvy UK comparing and contrasting Britain’s more unusual shopping habits from 2022. 

By analysing Nectar data and revealing the regional idiosyncrasies, Sainsbury’s has curated the ultimate snapshot of what Britain’s 2022 year in food really looks like.

The #CheckYouOut campaign runs across geotargeted digital OOH, social and email. Customers of Sainsbury’s and Nectar, the UK’s largest multi-partner loyalty programme, will receive customised analysis and insights based on their own shopping data, alongside a personalised microsite and dedicated regional pages, detailing the shopping secrets of regions across the UK.

#CheckYouOut showcases all manner of grocery revelations from the year, including which towns and cities were barbequing in the rain, brewing the most cups of tea and who really loves their cats the most.

“By using data from the millions of Nectar customers, the #CheckYouOut campaign is able to provide our customers with personalised insights into their shopping habits, interesting nuggets about their favourite products and also savings they’ve made this year. As a business it enables us to get closer to our customers, better understand their needs and use that insight to serve our customers more of what they love.” Alex Lovell, Head of Loyalty Marketing, Sainsbury’s .

“As a nation of food lovers, we’ve looked back at our 2022 eating habits to identify some of the weird and wonderful regional and national trends that have emerged. We hope the combination of data, media placement and fun facts will make people smile and potentially spark a little rivalry.”” Laura Boothby, Head of Campaigns, Sainsbury’s

“The #CheckYouOut programme showcases the fun, wit and flavour in everyday purchases and the trends that Sainsbury’s customers buy into throughout the year. Offering great quality food is at the heart of what Sainsbury’s does and combined with the data from Nectar customers they are perfectly placed to reveal what goes on in the UK’s kitchens and celebrate those more unusual cupboard conventions.” Johnny Watters and Angus George, Executive Creative Directors, Ogilvy UK.
