First Mills

Baked in Saudi

Agency: MullenLowe Mena


First Mills, a Saudi born and bred company, wanted to launch its range of flour products. Players in the market weren't of Saudi origins and Al Oula was the only 100% Saudi product, so we played on a popular Arabic proverb, "kneaded it and baked it." While the proverb could be understood in the context of dough, it is commonly used to indicate one's knowledge and expertise of a specific place or subject.
Our film takes us from one insightful occasion to another, transitioning through cinnamon sticks, cups and other objects commonly found at home to narrate our story and expertise in an entertaining way.

This professional campaign titled 'Baked in Saudi' was published in United Arab Emirates in April, 2022. It was created for the brand: First Mills, by ad agency: MullenLowe Mena. This Film medium campaign is related to the Food industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 2 years ago.
