Tastic Weddings debuts its new mobile kitchen in Soweto

BRAND ACTIVITY

May 23rd 2011, 12:29

Soweto, May 2011: What better event than a wedding to demonstrate and celebrate the quality, versatility and Tastic brand promise of Perfect, Everytime. Tastic sponsored weddings is a three year long initiative whereby Tastic takes its parboiled product directly to its consumers and leverages off its achieved brand loyalty to illustrate the versatility of parboiled rice as well as further educate and penetrate this market in terms of product development and other Tastic products.

Tastic sponsors parboiled rice, some popular recipes for the wedding reception and a bridal hamper in exchange for some subtle branding and promotional activity. While waiting for the bridal party to arrive at the reception, two Tastic promoters educate guests about existing and new Tastic products, the history of rice, its nutritional benefits as well as conduct product sampling and cookbook give-aways while gaining consumer insight via questionnaires.

The success of this initiative prompted Tastic’s BTL agency, Eyes and Ears Marketing Services, to increase the experience and consumer reach by investing in a Tastic mobile kitchen. Pitched adjacent to the Tastic promotion and information kiosk, the mobile kitchen accommodates up to three Tastic chefs who prepare a variety of fresh rice salads for guests to sample. The facility is equipped with a gas stove-top, sink area, counter space and fridge.

The three newly appointed Tastic chefs include; Goaneltse Maswenyaneg, Amos Matlala and Simphiwe Zulu, who are currently third and fourth year students studying hospitality at the Ekurheleni East College - Springs Campus.

The Tastic weddings sponsorship programme is currently implemented in three provinces; Gauteng, Limpopo and the North West and has been successful in reaching the brand’s core parboiled rice market through direct interaction with consumers while introducing them to new products in the portfolio such as Tastic Nature’s range of brown rices. The mobile kitchen enhances the initiative by creating the tangible elements of cooking aromas, recipe sampling and the visual of chefs-in-action who are available for comment regarding their recipes.

The programme has grown from inception purely by word of mouth with escalating levels in demand, which confirms the confidence that the popular brand has achieved among consumers.

The retail sector is under increasing pressure as consumers have shrinking disposable income in a strained economy. Maintaining share of wallet is critical. Relying solely on a push route to market strategy from manufacturers into retailers is not enough to get consumers buying products. A pull strategy needs to coexist with the push to drive brand consumption. Integrating these strategies requires intelligent and insightful decision-making. This, in turn, requires data generated through smart technology which provides line of sight across the value chain from manufacturer to distribution, retailer to the consumer.
