It’s day four of Cannes Lions, and the results for the creative business transformation and creative e-commerce Lions categories are in.

Marcel Paris won the Grand Prix in creative business transformation for Act for Food, for French supermarket chain Carrefour. The new business transformation category reflects the campaigns that showed a strong brand purpose and made an impact on business.

Created with production company Control Films, Act for Food aims to transition to ecologically sustainable food production.
