Lowe China tipped to nab Minute Maid Pulpy

SHANGHAI - Lowe China is understood to have won the creative pitch for Coca-Cola's Minute Maid Pulpy brand.

Lowe China tipped to nab Minute Maid Pulpy

The news of the pitch for Minute Maid Pulpy, which rivals Coca-Cola in terms of sales volume in China, was broken by Campaign Asia-Pacific in August. 

Knocking out FCB and incumbent AOR Saatchi & Saatchi in the last round of pitching, Lowe is said to have won the business based on how well its proposed animatics tested in third-party research.

Minute Maid took the pitched creative work from the final agencies through ad pre-testing and validation by Millward Brown, the regular research agency used by Coca-Cola.

"Research determined the winning concept and therefore the winning agency," according to an insider close to the client.

According to industry sources, revenue for the above-the-line account is estimated at RMB10 million (US$1.56 million) per year.

Saatchi & Saatchi and FCB have not responded to requests for comment.
