It is the perfect way to celebrate the launch of our brand new coconut water range and support our ATL advertising campaign this summer.”The campaign aims to target existing coconut water drinkers as well as appealing to new customers to by emphasising the health benefits of drinking coconut water.Misha Dhanak and Joe Sinclair, founders of The Romans, added: “Smiley face, smiley face, palm tree, sunshine.”The Romans launched in January this year and won its first retained account, music streaming service Spotify, in May.
