Día del Niño and Ciclotón: Sweet events in Mexico

16.5.2024 Company and Culture

Two special events took place in Mexico at the end of April: Día del Niño (Children's Day) and Ciclotón (Cycling Day). Our dedicated colleagues from the D'Gari and Rexal brands were active throughout the weekend, creating a great atmosphere for families and athletes.

Children's Day is very important in Mexico and is not only celebrated with the family, but also with public festivities. In Mexican culture, the family and children in particular are very important, which is also reflected in the significance of the day.

On this years Día del Niño, Dr. Oetker D’Gari participated in an event organized by a well-known magazine for kids. More than a thousand children decorated delicious dinosaur-shaped cakes. Using Rexal baking powder, D’Gari pudding, and colorful sprinkles, they created sweet artworks.

The Cycling Day takes place in Meixico every last Sunday of the month and coincided with Children’s Day in 2024. ‘Being active’ was emphasized, and it wasn’t just bicycles that filled Mexico City’s city center. Around 90,000 people cycled, walked, and ran around the ‘Angel of Independence’ on Avenida Reforma.

Our colleagues from D’Gari and Rexal were handing our refreshing jellies to the athletes and also included packages of our recently launched instant pudding. This allowed participants to enjoy the products at home.
