XLS-Medical Max Strength

Innovation planning for the future to stay ahead of the competition


Happen worked collaboratively with Omega Pharma and Boots to develop a ‘wow’ activation plan for XLS-Medical Max Strength.Following the huge success of XLS-Medical since launch, Omega Pharma wanted to deliver a bigger, better activation plan for 2016, to support their launch of Max Strength and maintain their position as a leader in category growth.

What we did

Using our collaborative, insight-led process, we uncovered a number of highly impactful insights focused around the ambition of women to not just lose weight but to maintain an overall healthy lifestyle. We also worked in partnership with Boots to co-develop in-store activation plans which directly supported this message.

A firm set of 2016 action plans were achieved for both Omega Pharma and Boots to put into place, helping to drive continual category growth and deliver a stellar year for XLS-Medical.
