PARIS,November 29, 2021 /3BL Media/ - To meet the demand from consumers in France seeking better eating habits, Carrefour and Danone built an unprecedented partnership with several other major national brands: Barilla, Bel, Mars Food, Savencia and Unilever, with the support of The Consumer Goods Forum.

Tasty, balanced recipes, rated Nutriscore A or B were published online in March 2020 and May 2021 on the “” website. All the recipes on offer were developed using products from national brands (Barilla, Danone du Monde Skyr, Knorr, La Vache qui rit, Le Rustique, Ben’s OriginalTM…) and Carrefour products. Most of the products on offer were made available on promotion, to allow everyone to cook balanced meals at affordable prices. 

A targeted digital campaign in May 2021 drove traffic to the website, with three live cooking sessions featuring “750g” recipes made by their team of chefs. This fully collaborative project has had a real impact, gathering 1.5 million views on the live cooking sessions, +21% sales of organic products from the e-shoppers, an increase in fruit and vegetables purchases (+8%), index 110 on Nutriscore A and B products in the shopping carts of the e-shoppers that visited the page, and +18% references for the featured brands.
