On Valentine’s Day this year, Knorr wanted to show love to South Africa by doing what they do best: by getting Mzansi to #EatForGood. The brand knew that on this special day, South Africans ­– like the rest of the world – would treat themselves and their loved ones to chocolate and sweets and more chocolate. 

For a country that has one of the world’s worst diets (with vegetables making up less than 13% of its plates), Knorr understood that South Africans couldn’t afford another slab of chocolate. After all, South Africans already suffer from numerous health problems like heart disease and diabetes due to unhealthy eating habits.  

And so, to encourage South Africans to #EatForGood, Knorr created unique bouquets and sent them to SA’s favourite bloggers and influencers to share with the rest of Mzansi. Instead of flowers, these bouquets were created using fresh vegetables. These #VeggieBouquets included a QR code that directed them to the Knorr website for simple recipes that would transform each bouquet into a healthy, tasty dish. 

In this way, on Valentine’s Day, Knorr reminded South Africans that self-love (which is the most important love of all) begins with what you put in your body.
