Gutenberg drove widespread awareness and international participation at World Food India with multiple digital campaigns resulting in 100+ million online impressions.

India is one of the largest food producers of the world, 40% of food produced in India is wasted. India loses $9 Million worth of food every year, making it one of the most under-developed food processing countries in the world. To tackle this issue and to create awareness regarding this crisis, the Indian Government launched World Food India, the country’s largest international event for the food processing industry, targeting global decision makers.

The Ministry of Food Processing Industries partnered with Gutenberg to position World Food India as a landmark event, that will revolutionize the global food procession industry, showcasing India’s unique position as one of the largest food producers globally, and educate the world about the positive impact of government policies.

Gutenberg’s aim was to build awareness and interest around the international event, engaging a diverse audience to drive participation as well as investments. The challenge was World Food India being an entirely new entity, required a fresh digital identity, followed by promotions, leading to registrations and all this needed to be done in a couple of weeks.
