DDB Canada has been appointed as the lead agency for the Canadian cheese business working collaboratively with DFC's agency partners, in the development of a new strategy and creative to drive sales in 2013 and beyond.

"Canadians absolutely love their cheese. But we need to entice them to bring home more varieties more often. There are many varieties of Canadian cheeses to discover," says David Leonard, national president and chief operating officer, DDB Canada.
