Time for tea. Generating excitement and pipeline innovations for a new Lipton launch


T.O by Lipton is a brand new tea machine creating a whole new category and consumer experience, which launched in Autumn 2015. We were asked to help drive ongoing consumer excitement throughout 2016

Happen worked with the beverages team at Unilever to generate a pipeline of limited edition innovations and in-store executions to support the brand new launch of T.O. by Lipton.

What we did

To generate consumer excitement around the brand new launch, we delved into global trends to uncover how to maintain relevance with the target audience throughout the year.
