Lay’s, India’s favorite potato chip brand, has launched a campaign to share gratitude towards the unsung heroes’ who have brought joy to millions. Aptly titled #Heartwork , this campaign is a heartfelt, emotional ode to each hero in the brand’s supply chain who works relentlessly against all the odds to ensure Lay’s brings joy to millions across the country.
Campaign #Heartwork to salute unseen heroes
The campaign film signifies that each pack of Lay’s is a celebration of the #Heartwork of unseen heroes, including farmers, factory workers, truck drivers, distributors, salesforce, retailers, and delivery executives, whom we don’t always get a chance to thank in person. Through this film the brand extends its sincere appreciation and gratitude to them on behalf of the company and every consumer who enjoys Lay’s.
The film applauds the #Heartwork of the Indian farmer who puts in the utmost care and love in growing the best quality potatoes that go into the making of Lay’s. It thanks the factory workers, who work day and night, to ensure production of Lay’s. It recognizes the efforts of the truck drivers who often drive long miles across the country, to reduce the distance between the consumer and one of their most loved brands. And, last but not least, the film expresses gratitude to the retailers and delivery executives who ensure that the snack brand reaches the consumer. It’s a succinct yet heartwarming depiction of #Heartwork from lush green potato farms to fingers that consume a pack of Lay’s with utmost joy.
Explaining the idea behind the special ode, Dilen Gandhi, senior director and category head – Foods, PepsiCo India said, “Every step of the journey from farm to finger is filled with countless stories of people who face tough challenges but overcome them with dedicated efforts and with a smile on their face. They might be working behind the scenes, but they are the real heroes of the story. With the #Heartwork campaign, we want to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to each of them. Thanks to their efforts, Lay’s can bring joy to millions of consumers in India.”
Ritu Nakra, WPP India lead – PepsiCo Foods said, “#Heartwork is our latest endeavor acknowledging the tireless spirit of all the people who are behind the scenes who have ensured the uninterrupted supply of Lay’s to the consumers.”
She added, “This community spirit inspired Team WPP to create a warm and touching story of deep gratitude. Lay’s helps build and celebrate connections, and with this film, we expand the narrative of heartfelt connections to the unsung heroes.”
Lay’s India works with over 24,000 farmers, 4300 factory workers, 2400 distributors, 6.5 lakh retailers, and 5000 sales staff, proudly delivering joy across the country each day.
