To expand services across the country, foodpanda has awarded its $1.875 million offline media management agency for Pakistan to Blitz Advertising, an affiliate of Spark Communications.

He added, “The credit goes to the team for its relentless work and input, with the clarity of thought, value proposition, and the strategic insights. We are super excited to work on this very dynamic category.”
The media review by foodpanda Pakistan had shortlisted GroupM and Blitz Advertising as potential media agencies are going to take over its overall media strategy development, announced on 20th September.
Furthermore, the media agency that won would work with the brand & media teams of foodpanda Pakistan so that specific cost per rating point (CPRP) target may be fulfilled which was based on a desire for media efficiency instead of media effectiveness, according to the brief.
