#1 e-commerce platform selling high-end cheese in China

Context before April 2016 :

  • No high-end cheese available in China, only industrial and expensive cheese distributed by large food retailers.
  • No e-shop specialized in high-end cheese
  • No information available about different kinds of cheese for Chinese customers

Solution : Cheese Republic, the first e-shop specialized in cheese in China, was born !

Our marketing strategy

  • Creation of a mysterious "fake leader" called the Governor of Cheese Republic.
  • Logo referring to French Revolution : French people like to complain and go on strike. We need to reply to this anger!
  • Essentially targeting French people living in China : French language, French cheese, French humor.
  • 100% mobile based strategy in line with Chinese way of life.
