India is the diabetes capital of the world; if unchecked, millions more will fall prey. The vision of the #MakeIndiaDiabetesFree movement is to address this raging epidemic by entrusting the power back in the hands of the people so our country can reverse the trend by 2030. To partner this cause, Fortune Foods introduced a healthy companion, Fortune VIVO Oil.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to take on this disease by encouraging people to stay ahead of it and inspiring their family & friends to follow a healthier lifestyle. With Fortune VIVO Oil, the intention is to make one eat better, live fuller & stay fitter.

Eat better by using our healthier oil for cooking to stay ahead. Live fuller & stay fitter by being pro-active in everything you do to nourish the heart, body and mind. In essence, we want to ignite a nationwide movement of change that starts with the idea to #MakeIndiaDiabetesFree.

The Stepping Stone to #MakeIndiaDiabetesFree

While the oil was unveiled by the fit & fab Parineeti Chopra, users could catch all the action through a live stream on YouTube and through live tweeting. From the Kabuki dance performance to the discussions on health and food, the event definitely caught eyes of many.

With the release of Kapoor & Sons right around the corner, we took the opportunity to spread the message. Users sent in slogans telling us how to #MakeIndiaDiabetesFree and a few lucky ones got a chance to meet the star cast of the movie.

Know Your Diabetes Quotient to Live the VIVO Way of Life

To #MakeIndiaDiabetesFree, we wanted to bring in a special life coach to help millions tide over this deadly disease. We gave the oil can a makeover in the form of VIVO Buddy, who guided people to a wholesome lifestyle.

We introduced the concept of DQ (Diabetes Quotient) via an innovative food game. Every player was offered numerous food choices, which helped detect a DQ score on the basis of which they received an avatar. The score was an indication of both dietary knowledge and attitude.

Players were assigned 4 personalities mapped out on the basis of their DQ:

Balan Sigh, Kam Kam Sen, Khaliya Bhatt and Fikar Akhtar.

Balan Singh
KamKam Sen
Khaliya Bhatt
Fikar Akhtar

VIVO Buddy, taking up his duty as the guide, was a Cooking Companion who gave updates on diabetic-friendly food along with recipes, an Exercise Ally with fitness tips and de-stress mantras, a Myth-busting Mentor who revealed facts and a Grooming Guru with secrets to rejuvenate.

The VIVO Agreement - For Couples on a Mission!

Then came the next phase of the #MakeIndiaDiabetesFree movement. We reached out to various couples to sign the VIVO Agreement, which was a simple understanding between them to keep their diabetic partner's blood sugar level under control via regular exercise and the right food. While users gave us tips, we also aided them with our panel nutritionist who replied with customized advice.
