In a bid to promote diversity in India on Independence Day (August 15), Cadbury created a four-in-one chocolate ‘Unity’ bar.
The limited edition treat is designed to unite “people of different castes, creed, languages, regions and religions” represented through the mix of dark, blended, milk and white chocolate.
Taking to Instagram to share the news, Cadbury wrote: “This Independence Day, let’s celebrate a country that stands united in its diversity. Presenting the Cadbury Unity Bar, India’s first chocolate with dark, blended, milk and white chocolate all under one wrap.”
The post soon amassed over 7,000 likes with most social media followers taking to the platform to praise the chocolate giant’s latest move.
“Forget just India’s unity,” one commented. “This thing should unite people all over the world!”
Another added, “Don’t make it for a limited time period. Make it a forever thing Cadbury.”
“Absolutely fantastic ad!” a third wrote.
Cadbury teamed up with Indian PR agency, Ogilvy, on the project to mark Indian Independence Day.
The iconic purple packaging also underwent a redesign and features an illustration of Indian citizens from various religious and cultural backgrounds holding hands.
Explaining the concept, the Ogilvy website states: “India is a diverse country, with people of different castes, creed, languages, regions, religions.”
“Everyone living together, but not always with love. Cadbury Dairy Milk, which is loved by everyone, wanted to send a powerful message of unity,” the PR agency continued. “So we worked with the brand to create the Unity Bar: India’s first chocolate made of dark, blended, milk and white chocolate – all united in one bar.”
