Ocado invites shoppers to let ‘Summer Come to You’ in new campaign 

LONDON, UK — Ocado, the world’s largest dedicated online grocery retailer, reminds shoppers of its unbeatable range and seamless service in a humorous new advertising campaign called “Let Summer Come to You.” It was developed by the brand’s retained creative agency St Luke’s with Eat Creative, Ocado’s in-house creative team. 

The films feature customers who are out and about, enjoying summer with their family and friends. From barbecues to beach trips, each scene sparks an unlikely reminder of the groceries needed to make summer special — highlighting Ocado’s unbeatable choice and frictionless service.

The campaign uses the signature Ocado track, which St Luke’s introduced in 2021 and has re-orchestrated for each ad since, turning it into a powerful brand asset for Ocado.


“Let Summer Come to You” runs through to September as a through-the-line campaign spanning multiple channels, from above-the-line to on-site executions. 

Hearts & Science devised the media strategy and is responsible for all ATL media buying, working with Threepipe, which handles the performance buying.

The 30-second film Let Summer Come to You runs with some of the UK’s biggest shows, including Britain’s Got Talent, Gogglebox, The Piano, and Red Eye across linear and BVOD. 10” cut downs will be added into rotation from June onwards. The TV campaign is also supported by bespoke social executions and linear and digital audio, also created by St Luke’s. 

Eat Creative produced OOH, which was planned by Talon, to run at high-profile launch sites such as Euston Motion and print ads running in titles such as The Guardian, The Times, Metro, and Evening Standard. Digital executions, including eCRM, programmatic and on-site comms, were also created by Eat Creative.

Sarah Emerson, Head of Brand Advertising at Ocado, said, “Summer is the key time of year for Ocado – it’s our moment in the sun, and we want to shine. This campaign brings to life the delicious, easy, breezy summer joy that Ocado delivers to our customers. It was a brilliant strategic and creative collaborative approach from beginning to end between our agency partners, St Luke’s, Hearts and Science, ThreePipe, as well as our internal studio, Eat Creative. 

Al Young, Joint Chief Creative Officer at St Luke’s, said, “Summer is all about spontaneity. Ocado’s brilliant brief allowed us to push the campaign on — showing how effortless it is to have all foods and drinks that make summer special delivered to your door.”

Garrett O’Reilly, UK CEO at Hearts & Science, added, “The Summer campaign is always a great moment in Ocado’s annual calendar. We look forward to spreading the joy to their customers as the weather gets warmer. Consequently, we’ve built in a range of placements across digital and traditional media to ensure we reach Ocado’s key audiences, whether they’re at home or already out and about.”

It was recently named the UK’s fastest-growing supermarket, with sales up 12.2% between December 2023 and February 2024. [Source: NIQ FullViewTM]
