Summary
Brands can significantly benefit from developing an in-depth understanding of the reasons for the success and failure of new product launches or marketing campaigns. This case study identifies how Kashi saw sustained decline following a GMO scandal and lawsuit, multinational ownership revelations, and a lack of parent-company focus which jarred with the brand's wholesome image.

Key Highlights
Kashi was founded in 1984, bought by Kellogg's in 2000, and found to contain GMOs in October 2011, challenging the "nothing artificial" tagline the brand had adopted. The ensuing lawsuit has seen Kashi refocus its brand and Kellogg's take a step back in terms of product governance.

Increasingly savvy consumers mean that brands are no longer able to hide behind unclear marketing terms, despite them being in line with consumer demands.
