Tesco commits to inclusivity in dynamic campaign to mark Ramadan
By Rosie Barker on Tuesday, April 5, 2022
As one of the UK’s most popular grocers, Tesco’s customers include over 3 million people who celebrate Ramadan each year, yet this is the first time they’ve made a truly considered attempt to celebrate the month with their first OOH campaign to mark the religious holiday.
Digital billboards strategically situated in areas across the country with a prevalent Muslim community show empty plates filling up with delicious looking food as night sets in and the sun goes down.
Accompanied by the lines; ‘Together this is Ramadan’ and below; ‘In honour of everyone fasting, these plates only fill up as the sun goes down.’
Teaming up with creative agency BBH, Tesco aimed to deliver a message that spoke authentically to the Muslim community, by celebrating the nuance of Ramadan with Muslim representation across the entire creative team; including photographer Khali Musa and cast members from the Race and Ethnicity Network within the supermarket.
The brand also brought on board inclusion consultants ‘The Unmistakables’- whose founder and chief executive Asad Dhunna- highlighted the importance of campaigns like this, given that the Muslim community so often feels betrayed by the media through many prejudiced and negative articles.
