Lipton reaches out to Muslims during Ramadan in new Campaign
Lipton tea, a breakfast staple in most households in Nigeria and a product of Unilever Nigeria Plc is encouraging consumers to take action in line with the spirit of Ramadan through the just launched Ramadan campaign for the iconic brand.
Enumerating on the reason for the campaign, the Category Manager Tea and Spreads, Vivian Ihaza, said that the Ramadan period, which is very important for Muslim consumers across Nigeria is not only a time of reflection and prayers but also a period to reach out to someone in need.
“It is a fundamental human truth that we all have good intentions and thoughts that are related to social goodness but most times, our busy lives get in the way of turning these thoughts into actions,” she said.
The Lipton Ramadan campaign is about encouraging our Muslim brothers and sisters to #ThinkLessDoMore by taking actual, concrete actions this season without expecting anything in return’. She further noted that Lipton Yellow Label tea as the uncontested market leader in Nigeria was well placed to deliver this message of encouragement.
The campaign, which began last week with some popular social media celebrities using the hashtag #ThinkLessDoMore on their twitter and Instagram handles, will continue through the Ramadan period on television, radio and other communication channels.
The Lipton mobile Ramadan lounge will also be stationed at select mosques across Nigeria to provide refreshment after IFTAR prayers by Muslim faithful. As the Lipton Brand Manager, Tayo Adesokan, also pointed out, “It’s not just about Lipton preaching but also taking concrete actions too. This is Lipton’s way of also “Doing” in line with the campaign idea”.
