An impactful in-store device

This year again, the shelves and aisles of many stores were dressed in yellow, the emblematic color of the Crêpes en Fête committee.

For its 25th anniversary, the committee is modernizing with a new visual identity and a funnier communication tone.


The new 360° system included product highlights, on-shelf animations, contests, flyers, etc.


More than 360 stores have integrated an animation and/or a theatrical display in their shelves for Candlemas.


The signs concerned by the Crêpes en Fête scheme are the following:

    - Carrefour : from January 24 to February 6

    - Auchan : from January 24 to February 2

    - Cora : from January 24th to January 30th

    - Intermarché (on a part of the park): from January 24 to February 5
