Almarai's Fresh Cream campaign: The Perfect...Perfected! won a silver Effie, while the bronze award went to the launch campaign for Almarai Vetal Probiotics range (Laban & Zabadi). Almarai's winning entries were executed by Almarai's marketing team, creative agency TBWA\RAAD\Saudi Arabia and Saudi MediaVest.
