Brad Pitt stars in De’Longhi’s first international campaign

Brad Pitt stars in De’Longhi’s first international campaign

De’Longhi launches its first international campaign directed by Damien Chazelle and starring Brad Pitt.

“De’Longhi has had extraordinary growth in recent years and the production of coffee machines for home use has played a key role in this growth,” commented CEO Massimo Garavaglia. “We believe that Brad Pitt is the Perfetto ambassador to speak to the world about De’Longhi, reflecting some traits of the De’Longhi spirit: bold and international, yet sophisticated and elegant at the same time.”

Thanks to this campaign, the viewer can enter a “day in the life of Brad Pitt.” From buying your coffee bean mix in the morning to riding around Los Angeles on your motorcycle and stopping at a gas station, these scenes depict a moment we all look forward to: getting home and finally relaxing with a delicious espresso or cappuccino, a moment A perfetto that comes true thanks to the De’Longhi super-automatic coffee machine, as it grinds coffee beans instantly and thanks to its technology transforms it without losing its authenticity into the perfect expression of Italian espresso.

Choosing Brad Pitt for this international campaign involves more than working with a recognized global icon – Pitt is an acclaimed actor and producer, a committed environmental advocate, an art collector, passionate about architecture and design. Above all, it maintains its essence, despite its worldwide fame. A spirit of humility that reflects the De’Longhi brand itself, a company linked to its roots with a typically Italian passion for harmony and elegance that goes beyond simple stereotypes and is accessible to everyone.

Positive results for Groupe SEB, (includes brands Krups, Moulinex, Rowenta, Tefal)

which reported sales of 3,610 million euro, with a growth 23.9% compared with end-June 2020. The increase includes organic growth of 26.3% (768 million euro), a currency effect of -4.3% (-125 million), and a scope effect of +1.8%. Though the increase is to be compared with a first-half 2020 that was heavily impacted by the spread of the pandemic, it also reflects solid growth relative to first-half 2019, with sales up 8.2%. Drivers of the Groupe performance are both the Consumer business and a significant rebound in Professional sales in the second quarter.

The Consumer business recorded an organic growth of 29.6% in the first six months, against weak 2020 comparatives in all regions. After a brisk start to the year (+39.1% LFL), the Group maintained robust sales momentum in the second quarter (+20.6% LFL), still driven by strong demand for small domestic equipment around the world. In this environment, promotional pressure remained moderate, ensuring a firm price-mix. E-commerce continued to be a powerful growth engine, the reopening of stores having come late in numerous countries.

Thierry De La Tour d’Artaise, Chairman and CEO of Groupe SEB

Groupe SEB posted an excellent first half, – conmented Thierry De la Tour D’Artaise, chairman and CEO of Groupe SEB – with performance even outstripping pre-pandemic levels despite unprecedented external tensions in the supply chain relating to raw materials and components, delays and additional freight costs. These performances were driven by buoyant demand for small domestic equipment and continued strong momentum in e-commerce. In a context of a still unstable global health environment, but given the performance of the first half, we now anticipate for full-year 2021 a growth in reported sales exceeding 10%, along with an operating margin of close to 10

Beko new eco appliances

Beko unveiled seven sustainable products including a washing machine/washer dryer, oven, tumble dryer, refrigerator, espresso coffee maker and dishwasher to help consumers reduce their impact on the environment. The innovative products use recycled materials such as such as PET bottles, fishing nets; bio-composites such as coffee residue and eggshells; as well as detergent saving technologies for sustainable living.

At the event, Beko shared a Europe-wide survey on people’s attitudes and concerns about sustainability. Its results show that the vast majority of Europeans (UK 88%, IT 88%, ES 87%, DE 84%, FR 78%, PL 74%) of the six countries asked said they feel it is their personal responsibility to make a difference by minimizing waste, water and energy use in their daily lives. The number of people thinking it is down to others, such as the government or business, or who think that they cannot make a difference, is negligible.

Recycling is found to be the most popular activity linked to sustainability that people practice at home. Interestingly, this activity scores significantly higher in the UK market at 84% compared to all others, with Italy coming closest at 78% and Germany last at 66%.

When asked what else they could do to protect the planet, respondents list in order of effectiveness, buying sustainable products, fighting food waste, reducing air travel and eating less meat. The main obstacle to living more sustainably at home is found to be the perception of high prices of sustainable products in all countries.

Price is the most important decider when buying a home appliance, with longevity and environmental friendliness coming in after, despite most of the respondents (IT 88%, ES 86%, FR 85%, PL 84%, UK 77%, DE 75%) agreeing on the importance of purchasing sustainable home appliances that have a meaningful positive impact on our planet.

Hakan Bulgurlu, CEO of Arçelik, said, “Our goals in sustainability and our leading efforts in innovation are two great parts of the same whole. Their evolution depends on each other. It is up to us to find better, more environmentally conscious ways of conducting our lives. With a series of eco-friendly Beko appliances, customers can now fully equip a sustainable home.”

Arçelik’s CMO, Zeynep Yalım Uzun added “Beko’s brand purpose is empowering future generations to live healthier lives, which is only possible by living more sustainably and working towards a healthier planet. All our actions and every product we use has an impact on nature. So, beyond this seven-product portfolio, we are eager to adapt our existing technologies to make all our appliances more environmentally friendly too. For Beko, this is only the beginning.”

“At Beko, we are passionate about democratizing technology, making it affordable and ensuring that as many people as possible have access to it. By making sustainability a business model and integrating it into everything we do, we strive to reduce human environmental damage through developing high-performance, durable, affordable home appliances that are also eco-friendly”, said Arçelik’s CCO Ragıp Balcıoğlu.

”We have to protect and preserve the environment for future generations and now, more than ever, we must act and make changes in this direction. Beko has taken this step and we are proud to offer Romanian customers access to ground-breaking products that will help them lead a sustainable life. We actively support the group’s mission on sustainability and have integrated this component as a vital part of our business model, and the production unit in Ulmi, the only 4.0 factory in Romania, represents our commitment in this direction”, said Murat Büyükerk, Chief Arctic Executive Officer.
