The Becel Blend Bar is an innovative activation conducted by Unilever that provides free culinary classes within the supermarket. Previously activating in the Netherlands, the Becel Blend Bar in Toronto is a great example of how a brand is able to assert their presence in-store with educational kiosks that highlight a product's best uses and other benefits.
