This Supermarket Is Using Snapchat Stories to Show How Fresh Its Fish Is

French Chain U Filmed Its Products' Final Hours

Editor's Pick

French supermarket chain U is taking advantage of Snapchat Stories -- and the fact they disappear after 24 hours -- to demonstrate that its fish really is freshly caught.

A campaign by TBWA/Paris put printed snapcodes on the origin labels of fish, connecting the customer to the Snapchat Spectacles of a fisherman, a sales manager, and a fishmonger. The content chronicled the fish's final hours before arriving at the fish counter. It also proved it was fresh, as Snapchat Stories only last for 24 hours -- so, if there was a story behind the origin label, that meant that the fish had arrived that day.
