Bachelors partners with Pokémon to roll out exclusive promotion

Batchelors is kicking off 2022 with an exclusive partnership with Pokémon, offering shoppers a raft of prizes through an on-pack promotion and campaign. Rolling out in stores nationwide from 27 January, the promotion is launching in the same week as the highly anticipated Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

The on-pack promotion will see Pokémon characters feature across packaging for Batchelors Super Noodles and Pasta ’n’ Sauce ranges, with shoppers able to win 100 prizes each week such as Nintendo Switch Consoles, Pokémon plush, copies of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games, and cards from the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Naomi Shooman, brand director for quick meals, soups and snacks at Premier Foods, comments: “Following on from the previous success of gaming partnerships for Batchelors, we are delighted to be joining forces this year with Pokémon, the highest media grossing franchise in the world. Our on-pack promotion will give shoppers the chance to win a range of prizes and Pokémon products, and is set to attract new shoppers to the category and encourage existing Batchelors fans to grab a pot or pack of Super Noodles or Pasta ’n’ Sauce more often. We know that Batchelors is particularly popular with those aged 35-44, and coupled with Pokémon’s wide-ranging appeal to younger adults, we see the partnership as a real recipe for success.”

The Batchelors and Pokémon promotion will be rolling out across retailers from 27 January, and will be supported through in-store activation in grocery and convenience.
