Vivera: embracing messy eating for World Kebab Day

Plant-based brand Vivera wanted to drive consideration on World Kebab Day, a date typically celebrated by meat lovers.

Our response?

Knowing our urbanite Millennial audience consisted of avid foodies, we shone a light on the foibles of eating a deliciously messy kebab. Having confirmed our hunch (that our consumers liked to devour their grub with gusto but making a mess might hold them back) we launched pop-up kebab booths, designed to allow them to embrace the mess in private.

A humorous photo accompanied a release that drove local listings coverage. This was followed by engaging consumer research shining a light on messy eating, and what Millennials consider good table manners. Finally, just prior to launch, we treated key influencers to a preview of the booths before opening to the public.


Despite a hectic news agenda, we landed eight national coverage hits, including Mail Online (twice), Daily Telegraph, London Evening Standard, The Sun, Daily Mirror and Daily Express.
