Visitors at parks in Dubai this month were delighted when they were greeted by Tang Mango samplers dressed in Tang gear. Tang has launched a new taste of their mango flavour. The new mango is different from the previous one, in that the taste is of the Asian mango which is more sweet.
Our team was present at the Creek park, Zabeel park as well as Mamzar park. The sampling was conducted over a weekend period to take advantage of the high traffic during that time. We procured the relevant permissions from the parks and the government departments. We also selected and trained the samplers. Our logistics team prepared the samples and delivered to the parks. Mango pink balloons with the Tang logo were printed and handed to children at the parks.
