Developed in collaboration with consumers, the in-store activations included promotional offers and multi-brand recipes to inspire behavioural change and nudge consumers towards flexitarian diets. Key figures from the pilot project published by Carrefour in June 2022 include:

  • 189% sales increase from in-store activities.
  • 1.7 million people reached with the ‘Healthy Bundles’ digital communication.

Building on the learnings from our evaluation partners KPMG and Catalina is key for the initiative to continue to evolve and impact at scale.  In today’s cost of living crisis, manufacturers and retailers need to continue to collaborate, engage and learn from pilot projects that suit the local community health needs, helping to keep products affordable and healthier without compromising on taste. In this way, the CHL France team has been continuously collaborating in moving consumers and restaurateurs towards healthier and more sustainable diets.

Since 2018, the SIRIUS awards led by the Institut de Commerce recognise industry-commerce collaborative best practices that meet societal and consumer expectations in France.

Pauline GuillaumeCSR Project Manager, Carrefour said, “For Carrefour, collaboration with our partners is key to promote healthier and flexitarian diets, in this case with vegetarian recipes, and ensure the food transition will affect all plates.”

Thomas Kyriaco, CSR Client Director, Danone: “ Bringing health through food to as many people and in the most sustainable way as possible is our mission at Danone. This can only be achieved through relentless and concrete initiatives and collaborations.”
