For years, Marmite's viewpoint on its product was that you either love it or hate it. Marmite wanted to reach out to those people who hadn't yet made up their minds and to get existing haters to reconsider their view. To do this, it needed a way to reignite the conversation about loving and hating Marmite, and to explore what causes this division. And so the Marmite Gene campaign was born.
