Nicolas Loufrani, CEO, The Smiley® Company
We have talked with Nicolas Loufrani, CEO at The Smiley® Company, about the collaboration and the inspiration behind our joint products.
How do you see the synergies between Smiley® and RICE?
"Together we bring strong brand values that are incredibly ligned. Both Smiley® and Rice spread positivity and happiness through our products and our promotions. I also love the very retro and sophisticated sense of aesthetics of Rice which is aligned with Smiley's® origins in the 70's. It’s a match!"
What do you hope this collaboration will contribute with?
"At Smiley®, our goal is to spread positivity through smiles to make the world a happier, kinder place. Throughout the last five decades, all our collaborations, partnerships and experiences have laddered up to this ethos.
As we look ahead to the next fifty years and beyond, we’re constantly finding ways to show people why smiling back at the world - together with Rice this collaboration will continue to do that – by harnessing the power of the smile."
