An immersive taste experience
We worked on a long term retail strategy with Merchant Gourmet, the UK’s best selling pulses and grains brand, to help more consumers, retailers and trade partners taste, appreciate, consider and buy more frequently as part of everyday cooking.
By creating and trading a food retail experience, we gave consumers the best possible environment to taste, understand and purchase the brand.
As a functioning restaurant and takeaway, as well as a brand immersion centre, the dining experience also focused on delivering a commercial return.
