Nestlé is the world’s largest food and beverage company with a purpose of "enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future". Nestlé believes that Good Food and Good Life go together. That food is not just fuel; it also brings us together. Food is an ingrained part of Indian culture and is an expression of our festivals, and celebrations, food reflects the rich diversity within each state.
Even when we look at a family unit, we find that parents are committed to bringing up their kids the right way – by passing on the right values and teaching them the right behaviour. Parents are also committed in feeding their kids good food every day. Parents try to provide their kids the right nutrition at an early age that will not only assist in the child achieving the right growth milestones (height, weight, cognition), but also will build health and wellness in the long run. Food habits, like values, are largely passed on from one generation to the next. However, lifestyles have changed and so have food habits. And parents do not always model good food behaviour, because they themselves do not have full knowledge about good food from the perspective of good nutrition.
Nestlé believes modelling good food behaviour starts with good food knowledge. Hence, they wish to encourage parents in urban India to learn the nutritional truths about Good Food.
Nestlé is committed to delivering this Good Food Knowledge via “Nestlé Nutrition Experts”. These experts will be available at various touchpoints (email, website, call) and have been created for this purpose.
This is a great opportunity for the creative community to be a chance of a nationwide initiative and also contributing to a subject of national importance.
Josy started BBDO India from the backseat of his car in 2008.
Along with his creative partner and CEO, Ajai Jhala, they pioneered the idea of brand movements with the belief that India needs more ‘acts not ads’. It was a new language for Indian advertising. And it became evident in one of BBDO India's very first campaigns - P&G Gillette’s ‘Women Against Lazy Stubble’ (WALS). The campaign created a major buzz in India and broke all previous sales records. It went on to win the inaugural Gold Lion for Creative Effectiveness at Cannes.
In 2015, Josy and his team won the inaugural Glass Lion Grand Prix at Cannes for their work on Whisper sanitary napkins called ‘Touch The Pickle’.
The Glass Lion category at Cannes recognises work that implicitly or explicitly addresses issues of gender inequality or prejudice, through the conscious representation of gender in advertising. Whisper’s integrated movement encouraged women, young and old, to talk openly about menstruation, and defy taboos.
Josy and his team also won the Glass Lion Gold for Ariel ‘Share The load’ - in 2015 and 2016. And the Creative Effectiveness Gold Lion in 2017. Last year, Dads#ShareTheLoad was recognised with the 'Star of Madison Avenue’ Award by the Advertising Club of New York.
Ariel #ShareTheLoad has recently been voted among the top 10 best campaigns for Social Good in the last hundred years – by Campaign US.
Josy was named Creative Agency Head of The Year by the IAA (Indian Advertising Association) in 2016. Campaign Magazine awarded him 'Creative Person of the Year for India and South Asia' in 2012, 2015 and 2016. He is ranked among the most influential people in Indian advertising - by The Economic Times.
Josy Paul was born during an earthquake and has a permanent tremor. He lives by the mantra, “Think like the navy, deliver like the pirates."
Raj, a graduate of the Sir JJ School of Applied Art, started his career at Enterprise Nexus/Lowe, Mumbai, where he went on to win half a dozen Clio Awards in his formative years, along with being the first Indian to be nominated for D&AD in 1996.
In 2001 Raj moved to Lowe, London, where he worked on brands such as Stella Artois, Unilever, Nestle and Saab, among many others. Soon he started a new role as Creative Director at Lowe New York. His winning streak continued as he bagged an One Show Gold and a Gold Lion at Cannes for his work for Stella Artois, Gillette and Light of Life Foundation.
After seven years at Lowe New York, he was hired by BBDO New York in 2010, as the Senior Creative Director. His work titled ‘World’s Biggest Shave’ was talked about in the Financial Times, CNBC and the New York Times. And his innovative work in print has won a couple of Cannes Gold Lions and a Silver Pencil in D&AD in 2011.
After more than a decade in the business, Raj moved back to his hometown, as the Chief Creative Officer for BBH India where he handled accounts like Vaseline, Diageo, World Gold Council and Google Chrome. Now as Founder and CCO at Famous, Raj is channeling his years of creative genius towards making several Indian and global brands famous.
Raj has cumulatively won more than 150 Global awards including at Cannes Lions, One Show, D&AD, the Clio Award, the Andy Awards, AdFest and Art Directors Club. He has given lectures at institutes such as the Kellogg Institute of Management and Columbia University. He was on the jury of OneShow 2014 and also runs Miami Ad School in India.

And brought about real social change via her work for the Indian Army and the government’s Clean India and Anti Female Foeticide campaigns.
Along the way, she has won more international and national awards for creativity and brand effectiveness than she cares to remember, but is particularly proud of her two Cannes Gold Lions and the much coveted D&AD pencil for her work on Duracell titled ‘Positive-Negative’.
Besides winning at Cannes, she has also been on the jury at the prestigious festival twice, and at the Clios as well.
An army brat and a boarding school product, Malvika has had the good fortune of experiencing different cultures across the length and breadth of the country. More than anything else, she considers this to be her biggest learning and edge.

Zenobia believes her job at Ogilvy has been 24 years of doing what she loves to do.
Her greatest thrill is the joy of flitting from shampoos to chocolates. From pencils to insurance. From women's beauty products to women's causes. Creating work across categories, is her joyride in life.
Her present portfolio of brands includes Dove, Pond's, Mondelez, Securities and Exchange Board of India, Hindustan Pencils, Taj Holidays, Welspun Spaces, and ICICI Bank. Some of her campaigns created for the Indian market have travelled the globe. The best part of her day is when she gets to sit with her teams and listen to their ideas.
Her work has won recognition at international awards festivals. At the World Women Leadership Congress 2016, she was honoured with the Women Leadership Achievement Award. She has also been a member of the Film jury at the Cannes Lions Festival 2016.
