As a result, National Foods was awarded the Top Brand Award in the Food Household category.

Effie Award Winner

As a winner of the Effie Award in the Culinary Category, we set out to create advertisement based on a key consumer insight that the primary usage of mayonnaise in households is with bread, paratha rolls and burgers. A good sandwich, burger or wrap becomes difficult to chew and swallow if it is dry. Recognizing this as a barrier for consumers to indulge in their favorite foods, we came out with an exaggerated play with “difficult food.”

National Mayo’s phenomenal performance in terms of the exponential effort it put into the marketing campaign to ensure all key RTBs were addressed effectively, as well as subsequently increasing its market share led to our Effie award win in July’20.
