THE SIX MILLION COFFEE CUP GIVEAWAY!
Nescafe is giving away more than six million cups of coffee over the next two months in one of the largest sampling campaigns this country has seen.
Taking to the streets, carparks, offices and universities of New Zealand’s five main cities 12 Nescafe samplers with spaceman-like Nescafe dispensing backpacks, good looks and eager wills will kick-start the day for thousands of New Zealanders.
Over 600,000 households will have also received a free Nescafe Classic sample pack containing enough for 10 cups of coffee in the mail.
Nescafe Senior Brand Manager Nicola Pearce says the purpose of the campaign, called the Nescafe…Love It In The Morning campaign, is to bring the great taste of Nescafe to thousands of New Zealanders in the mornings.
“Mornings are a great time to drink coffee because of its kick start benefits.”
Heading up the team of samplers is Nescafe Event and Sampling Coordinator Jenny Rutherfurd-Drasgo. With a hectic schedule of four hours a day, five days a week for eight weeks Jenny and the team intend to deliver the great Nescafe taste with fun to as many morning commuters as possible.
The Nescafe…Love It In The Morning campaign also features a nationwide advertising campaign, a consumer travel mug promotion and a university mug swap competition.
