Malaysia – Puratos Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei have recently engaged Aforemention by FOREFRONT to handle their 2024 social media content and performance marketing reach.

The contract was signed following the formal launch of the new brand identity for Belcolade, Puratos’ premium Belgian chocolate brand. This program offered an afternoon of culinary exploration across continents.

Aforemention by FOREFRONT’s main function will be to find global insights that the local market may relate to. They will also create performance plans and materials with the goal of raising awareness and bolstering Puratos’ premium positioning.

Belcolade creates goods that bring customer satisfaction and guarantee a sustainable future for future generations by fusing sensory knowledge with sustainability principles. Decades of research discoveries form the foundation of these endeavours.

Sandy Shiek, marketing director, Puratos Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei, said, “While taste remains the primary purchasing criterion for consumers, the sustainability of the chocolate is a key consideration factor for their purchase decisions – with 68% of respondents interested in food products coming from sustainable farming methods. The Cacao-Trace Sustainable Programme is a testament to our commitment towards taste and sustainability.”

She added, “Tapping into Aforemention’s key strength in digital storytelling, we immediately saw an opportunity to deploy a multi-screen, multi-moment communication framework that helps us to better deliver our messages to address the pain points of our users and decision makers.”

Meanwhile, Sylvester Hiew, chief marketing officer, FOREFRONT, expressed, “We are excited to find out how we can help a premium brand like Puratos communicate effectively in an emerging market like Malaysia. Staying true to our mission of igniting brands, we make it our business to understand consumer behaviours across different industries, and we have been successful in helping many clients tell their brand stories for almost two decades now.”
