Tilda® launches new ‘Tildalicious’ advertising campaign

Leading British rice brand Tilda® has unveiled its biggest ad campaign since it was founded over 45 years ago as part of a significant investment in the brand.

A much-loved brand purchased by at least a quarter of all UK households, Tilda’s campaign proudly celebrates their role at the heart of tables up and down the country. Inspired by the unique ability for food to allow us to explore other cultures, Tilda aims to encourage everyone to seek out, celebrate and discover the endless culinary possibilities that start with rice. ‘Tildalicious’ is simply the feeling of immense pleasure when food meets culture.

NEW TV CREATIVE

The new TV creative, aired at the weekend on Saturday 20th October, is a vibrant celebration of all the cultures of the UK. Tildalicious brings to life the culinary journey of different Tilda rice grains through the hands of real-life cooks from all over the
world, via their UK kitchens. Through this journey, cultures collide, new techniques and flavours are shared in the wonderful chaos of real life. Along with the succession of close- ups of dishes from around the world, the word ‘Delicious’ is displayed in global languages.

Anna Beheshti, Brand Lead at Tilda comments: “This autumn sees our biggest brand campaign yet with a £1.5m investment to reach new consumers and drive brand growth. We have developed a creative direction which illustrates Tilda’s natural positioning at the heart of multiple cultures and communities, and brings to life the feeling of immense pleasure when food meets culture. Tildalicious delivers this with a journey of discovery of culinary opportunities. Fourteen different dishes from around the world are featured from Jollof to Middle Eastern rice salad, with a wide range of languages and nationalities represented.”

The advert has been created by advertising agency Havas London – its first work since being named Tilda’s UK strategic and creative
agency. Elliot Harris, Deputy Executive Creative Director at Havas London, adds: “What a brilliant brief. Does any other food
span as many cultures, nationalities, communities and generations as naturally as rice? The result is a properly authentic, joyous,
modern brand celebrating its position right at the intersection of British food culture. I love the idea that the many diverse communities that make up the UK will see themselves represented in such an honest, relatable way.”

The TV ad will run from 20th October until the end of November 2018 and you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/JEhP_1eoHkk
