Warren Launches #BunnyBanter Easter Campaign to Help Charity

April 16, 2019 Off By Sebastian Reisig

Warren is well renowned for its Easter giveaways and this year is no different. However, this year alongside its normal seasonal giveaways, it has announced that it is putting the bunny back into Easter by running an interactive social media competition for its customers, with the aid of Warren’s trusty mascot, Starsky.

Customers are invited to try Starskys ears for size and then submit selfies and photos of their colleagues in their workplace via Twitter-wearing the ears, using the hashtag #BunnyBanter and tagging @WarrenBoard.

The most ‘hopping mad’ crazy fun selfies are being sought, with four lucky customers having the chance to win a £100 donation for the charity of their choice. Once all the #BunnyBanter selfies are in and the competition has closed, judging will pick the four wackiest winners, and each will win the £100 prize donation.

So, to be in with a chance of winning this egg-citing charitable prize, hop to it, put those ears on and get sharing your #BunnyBanter. Go on, show us your ears!!

The competition runs until the 31st May, and all winners will be notified by 7th June 2019.

Additionally, Warren has also announced a strengthening of its relationship with long-term supplier, Mayr-Melnhof.

Commenting on the news, Warren Managing Director, Kieran Ferguson, stated: “There have been a number of recent developments at the company. Already a long-established supplier, Mayr-Melnhof have now appointed Warren as the dedicated UK stockist/distributor for the full range of products from its Eerbeek mill including the Accurate™ and Accurate™ Top Strong range. As well as the standard products, both products are available with barrier treatment, providing food users an ideal solution to move away from plastic based packaging.”

The Easter charity social media promotion using Warren’s mascot Starsky’s ears has been produced using two of its key products. These are the recently added Creator from Lecta which has been used for Starsky’s ears, and Accurate Freeze™ from Mayr-Melnhof for the carton packaging.

A two-side semi-matte coated product with a velvety silk feel, CreatorSilk is ideal for producing high quality printed books & brochures and high-end advertising material that need to stand out from the crowd in terms of their imagery and print quality reproduction.

The Creator range, which also includes CreatorStar, is produced at Lecta’s Spanish mills where the strictest environmental, quality, energy efficiency, and health and safety management standards are adhered to, with Lecta’s mills certified to; ISO 14001, EMAS, PEFC™, FSC®, ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and OHSAS 18001 standards. Lecta has seven manufacturing sites located in Spain, France and Italy, serving its customers worldwide.

The FSC® certified paper and board ranges of Creator are available in both ream wrapped & bulk packed pallet stock, in weights ranging from 90 to 380 gsm and in a variety of sizes.

Accurate™ Freeze is a fully coated, light back, hard sized, folding boxboard and is available in a wide range of calipers and sizes.

It is ideally suited for a wide range of applications, including; packaging convenience foods, baked and breaded products, and other chilled/frozen foods. Additionally, it is also suited to cosmetic, pharmaceutical, confectionery and chocolate applications. Its brilliant gloss finish enables it to be used for all types of printing, including, varnishing and lamination.

Accurate™ Freeze is also recyclable and bio-degradable and meets all international packaging guidelines and food regulations and is available both FSC® and PEFC™ certified.
