First, this is a great opportunity for the Dentsu Group to partner NourishCo on their exciting new phase of growth in India. Second, it’s the first pitch where Taproot and a Dentsu group company have collaborated. This win strengthens my belief that we have a winning model at work. Third, this win strengthens our group’s relationship with PepsiCo, India.”
