Coca-Cola makes marketing push in Myanmar

In conjunction with the Thadingyut festival, an annual event that observes the end of Buddhist Lent, Coca-Cola has specially designed an exclusive gift pack.

Coca-Cola Myanmar, with the help of its agency TODAY Ogilvy & Mather,designed the gift pack which is said to be inspired by a famous local poem. The gift pack captures the visual of the moon and rabbit in a Myanmar setting, intended to reflect the loving respect with which Burmese treat their elders.

In addition, Coca-Cola is promoting the Thadingyut gift pack with a media campaign across television and print channels as well as on its Facebook page.

“Myanmar has a rich tradition of presenting gifts to elders out of respect and love for them during the Thadingyut Festival and we wanted to introduce a gift pack that people can resonate with on a personal level and that is befitting to this special celebration. We invite everyone to share this gift pack which is the first that Coca-Cola has introduced in Myanmar,” said Rommel P. Fuentebella, marketing director of Coca-Cola Myanmar.
