The heart-warming campaign championed by Unilever’s Walls Ice Cream and Talabat gave thanks to the crew this summer with a day of free ice cream, cool breaks, and gratitude on behalf of the community
UAE: Walls’ Ice Cream, one of Unilever’s key brands celebrated Ice Cream month this year with talabat’s delivery heroes in Dubai. On the 18th of July, which marked World Ice Cream Day, the brands collaborated to show talabat’s delivery heroes appreciation and gratitude in the sweetest way possible – with a refreshing serving of ice cream.
The activation was created keeping the Wall’s brand core values in mind – to deliver a 100 million smiles across the world with their line-up of delicious, frozen treats. Tricycles of ice cream were placed at a central talabat’s hub along with merchandise to help the riders cool off. Other onsite activities included photo opportunities with colleagues and thank you notes to remind them that their efforts; much like a delicious scoop; are always appreciated.
With summer in full swing, Wall’s Ice cream urges the public to join in on the efforts of making more people smile themselves beyond the month of July. Simply stock up on cold treats from talabat for yourself, and if you would like, stock up for the riders as well! During the summer, an ice-cold ice-cream goes a long way!
