Deliveroo partners with The Very Hungry Caterpillar

To celebrate World Literacy Day, Deliveroo and Rocket Licensing established a partnership to create a limited edition The Very Hungry Caterpillar meal box.

The meal box – which launched on 8 September – was available to buy from Deliveroo Editions in London, Manchester and Leeds for £2.79, with all profits being donated to The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s charity partner, Action for Children.

News of the campaign had a huge reach of over 66 million people with coverage in four national newspapers, 22 regional titles, four social media channels, six trade publications and one consumer magazine appearance, totalling 37 pieces of coverage. 98.5% was standalone coverage with headline mentions and branded images.

The Deliveroo Very Hungry Caterpillar meal boxes encouraged families to come together and read a free copy of the classic caterpillar’s tale included in the box, while enjoying different foods that are featured in The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s journey.

Included in the box was a fruit salad smoothie, made with all of the critter’s favourite fruits – strawberries, apples, pears, oranges, watermelons and plums; a chocolate caterpillar cake, with edible eyes, nose and legs; leaf crisps made with kale; plus ‘build-your-own’ sandwiches filled with beetroot ‘salami’, Emmental and sausage.

“We were so excited to collaborate with one of the most-loved children’s books around the world to help families across the UK celebrate World Literacy Day,” commented Aisha Jefferson from Deliveroo. “We wanted to create something inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar story that could spark imagination with families of all ages, offering a feast for the eyes and stomach.

“The meal boxes were loved by customers as they weaved in all of the fun, colourful, and delicious elements of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the world he lives in, while raising funds for charity.”

Charlie Donaldson, joint md of Rocket Licensing, added: “We were delighted to have worked with Deliveroo on this fun and creative partnership which satisfied both appetites and hungry minds with its fantastic meal box and classic book offering.

“We were also very pleased to be supporting Action for Children, a long-term charity partner of The Very Hungry Caterpillar brand, in their hugely valuable work.”
