Foodspring was one of the first advertisers on Facebook's advertising platform and gained a competitive advantage by successfully doing marketing for years. Finding a solution that allowed them to continue innovating and taking advantage of new opportunities was crucial for a digital marketing pioneer.

Foodspring was one of the first brands to advertise using Facebook Ad Manager platform, and it has gained a competitive advantage through years of successful marketing strategies and customer retention.
After a few years of exponential scaling, it became apparent that it would be more difficult to maintain the same growth pace. Despite various efforts to boost the Foodspring brand and gain new consumers, its growth in Europe slowed down.
