In 2009, muesli and porridge maker Flip Shelton, decided that a National Porridge Day would be a mighty fine way to build both the porridge category in Australia and sell some of her own brand of oatie goodness along the way.
Now starting a national day for anything is no mean feat, however, Flip has done it with aplomb and had some great successes along the way including national (free) media coverage on TV, radio and newspapers.
In this fun and revealing chat with Flip, she reveals exactly how and why she did it. And what her plans are for keeping National Porridge Day run well into the future.
