Pink Lady® team makes showing at Tour Voile 2019

For the third time, Pink Lady® Europe took part in the annual Tour de France à la Voile yachting race, an initiative that is in keeping with the company’s values and increasingly appeals to our stakeholders: consumers, brands, and influencers.

From 5 to 21 July, our crew of five young European sailors enjoyed 17 days of unrelenting adrenaline and competition, supported by a land-based team at each stage of the race as well as an exclusive partnership with Groupe Auchan.

Hostesses were placed in seven Auchan stores near the various stages with a game that guarantees a prize and is based on cards that are only legible when submerged in water.

A national operation was also run in the Group’s 137 stores across France throughout July, with 80,000 leaflets distributed in 6-pack Pink Lady® trays.

The event was advertised on digital media with a large national Facebook game offering the chance to win a weekend for four on the Mediterranean, inflatable paddle boards, and Pink Lady® bags made from recycled boat covers.

At each stage of Tour Voile 2019, a light-hearted and entertaining initiative enabled Pink Lady® to meet more than 160,000 adult and child consumers who were in the Village this summer.

Congratulations to our five sailors, who performed brilliantly and finished seventh in the overall ranking!
