Ruth has twice been commissioned to create a corporate gift campaign for Standard Life Investments in Edinburgh.

The campaign sponsor was looking for a gift ‘guaranteed to create a lasting and stylish impression with its top 1,000 clients around the world’.

Working with the campaign sponsor, Ruth and the team at The Chocolate Factory set about developing the ideal product to meet the campaign brief. They decided to base it on Cocoa Black’s boxed chocolates, which could be readily branded with corporate ribbon, for a bespoke feel.

The Cocoa Black team prepared over 1,000 boxes of chocolates. Each box of chocolates was finished with a personal message, branded ribbon and the final gift packaged in a secure box for worldwide shipment.

Cocoa Black also handled all aspects of fulfillment, managing the recipient database, and ensuring that Standard Life Investment’s ethos for excellence was maintained throughout the campaign.

The campaign was well received, and Ruth was commissioned to repeat the campaign the following year.


Thanks to Ruth and the Cocoa Black team for delivering a first class corporate gift campaign.
