Golden Agri-Resources (GAR)

Changing perceptions through purpose communications


Palm oil is a controversial yet extraordinary crop. Negative perception of the industry has led consumers to demand alternatives and governments to place restrictions on the industry. To improve freedom to operate and build stronger corporate reputation, GAR needed to change mindsets and establish themselves as a sustainable, purpose-driven organisation.


Spurwing developed a multi-channel, multi-audience campaign that would connect consumers, Governments and media to real people behind sustainable palm oil and build recognition for GAR’s purpose.

We reframed the palm oil narrative through a suite of key messaging documents focusing around the stories of real individuals. A steady drumbeat of tailored content also brought GARs audience on a purpose journey.
