Yorkshire Tea's Head of Brand Marketing Kevin Sinfield says, "Two years ago, we took our philosophy of properness and a fair bit of quirky Yorkshireness to the small screen through what was a hugely successful Brewtopia campaign. Now we're taking our passion and commitment to doing things properly to the next level through our biggest marketing campaign to date. We're extremely proud of the new adverts; they're fun, engaging and entertaining and with well-known celebrities at the forefront, they will drive our mission to make our belief in properness culturally famous." Filmed at the firm’s HQ in Harrogate, there are also cameos from its own staff. The campaign is supported through PR, digital and social media, as the brand seeks to grow its market share of 21.7% – placing it a close third in the UK market. Save
