Turkish Airlines launches ‘Five Senses’ campaign

Turkish Airlines, winner of Skytrax’s ‘Best Airline in Europe’ award for six consecutive years, debuted its new commercial on Sunday, during the most-watched show in US TV history, the Super Bowl.
Award-winning Danish director Martin Aamund took the reins for the film, which will be broadcast in many countries that the national flag carrier flies to across Europe, South Africa, the Far East, the Middle East, and the Americas.
Ahmet Olmustur, chief marketing officer of Turkish Airlines, said: “As the airline that flies to more countries than any other, we strongly believe that our mission is so much more than bringing our passengers to their destination. We actively encourage them to discover the world and through it, discover themselves. Our new ‘Five Senses’ campaign aims to emphasize the experience every journey brings toward discovering the unknown with our five senses to their fullest.”
He added: “We are more than satisfied by the feedback and outcomes of our celebrity ad campaigns with world-famous figures so far. Our campaign last year with Morgan Freeman was a great hit. Now we are looking forward to our new cooperation with Dr. Oz. We will maintain our leadership with our ‘Widen Your World’ mission, which will inspire the whole world to seek new discoveries.”
Dr. Mehmet Oz, the Turkish-American TV personality, emphasized the importance of a high-quality passenger experience.
“As a doctor who has dedicated his life to communicating the wonders of the human body to the world, I am thrilled to work with Turkish Airlines on their novel ‘Five Senses’ project,” he said. “Together we will explore the unique experiences we can have across diverse locations around the world as we invoke curiosity and a sense of wonder for our audience.”

Spain’s Provacuno aims to beef up Saudi market

Abdulaziz Alaquil Jeddah: Provacuno, the inter-professional organization of the Spanish beef industry, is currently on a promotional tour across the Kingdom showcasing the benefits of their high-quality and environmentally-friendly beef production. A non-profit organization officially recognized by the Spanish government, Provacuno represents 85 percent of the Spanish beef industry.
Established in 1997, Provacuno comprises national associations representing and protecting the interests of companies involved in the production, industrial, and commercial sectors of the Spanish beef industry. Their annual meat production exceeds 650,000 tons, and they have over 110,000 farms, with industry exports amounting to 175,000 tons annually.
For the past 20 years, they have officially been recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, as an agro-food inter-professional organization.
Along with defending the interests of the Spanish beef industry, from production, through processing, and trading, Provacuno aims to support the internationalization process of beef companies into export markets such as Saudi Arabia. Their promotion of responsible beef consumption through research and development programs is done with the goal of enhancing the beef industry’s image through their sustainable and environmentally-friendly production processes that are in strict compliance with the European Production Model, which adheres to the most stringent of standards regarding animal welfare, hygiene control, and environmental protection. While at the same time, they are able to cater to international market demands, such as being 100 percent halal-certified for Saudi markets.
Representatives of Provacuno are currently in the Kingdom promoting their marketing campaign “What a Wonderful European Beef,” which will conclude at the Foodex Saudi 2018 in Jeddah on Thursday. During this campaign trail, they organized a presentation on Spanish beef at the residence of Ambassador of Spain to Saudi Arabia Don Alvaro Iranzo in Riyadh.
The event was attended by over 50 Saudi import and distribution agents, who sampled Provacuno’s beef prepared by Spanish Chef Fernando Del Cerro.
Provacuno considers Saudi Arabia a key target market as it is one of the largest meat-consuming nations in the world reliant on quality meat imports. In 2017, the Kingdom produced 60,000 tons of meat while consuming over 220,000 tons. Recently, Brazil (39 percent) overtook India (26 percent) as the main exporter of beef to the Kingdom.
Along with meeting with industry executives in Riyadh, Provacuno also hosted a cooking workshop at the King Abdul Aziz University (KAU) in Jeddah.
