No other tuna for Anne Curtis

Century Tuna, one of the country’s trusted health brands, started the year big, dahlings, by launching its newest campaign, “No Other Tuna,” with its gorgeous endorser Anne Curtis, no less, at MyCinema, Greenbelt 3.

“We’re very delighted with Anne joining us again on this campaign. Bringing out a powerhouse endorser like her is the best way to signal this improvement in the product,” said Greg Banzon, Century Canning Corp. VP and general manager.

Banzon said 2012 was another banner year for Century Tuna.

This year, to satisfy consumers even more, “Century Tuna even has bigger and tastier flakes, with the same nutritional values like Omega-3 and DHA,” Banzon said.

Also welcoming the invitees were group media manager Gela Gamboa and senior product manager Noel Lazaro.

Anne Curtis expressed her happiness to be part of Century Tuna’s new campaign. “It’s been amazing to be part of Century Tuna, which has really been a part of my personal diet even before they got me as an endorser,” she said. “As I always say, it’s always a pleasure to represent a product that you truly believe in and to bring the message of health and fitness to more people through Century Tuna.”

The launching saw the special screening of Century Tuna’s new TVC. Guests were also given the privilege to view the commercial’s behind-the-scenes footage, dahlings.

Hosted by JM Rodriguez, the launch ended with the announcement of winners of the “Anne Ticket Mo” Facebook promo, who got the chance to have their photos taken with their idol.

The most touching portion of the shower was the sharing of advice on “what marital life is all about,” by Kate Gordon; principal sponsors Dr. Ellen Binay and Nene Leonor, natch; maternal grandmother Marivic Concepcion; and the mother of the bride-to-be, Marie Young.

They thrilled the invitees with their anecdotes and personal stories.
