The new contract is for the full portfolio of food brands in the Egyptian market.
“Over the past two years, OMD’s know-how and performance have made a significant difference to our brands,” says Marwa El Dahrawy, senior marketing manager at Savola Foods, in a statement. “The team’s proposal reinforced our perception of the agency and justified our decision to combine offline and digital with them. OMD delivered strongly in both the technical and commercial aspects, making our choice a straightforward one.”
“During the last two years, we have worked tirelessly on making a difference for Savola online. Our achievements with this have clearly paved the way for a bigger role and we couldn’t be more pleased,” adds Tarek Jaffar, general manager of OMD Egypt.“Over the years, we have built a robust expertise with FMCG brands and have the tools and talent to produce the kind of results our clients rightfully expect.
