As part of its Stronger Together initiative, P&G has announced unique activations that offer consumers a chance to win trolleys worth 500 AED, when buying P&G products worth 50 AED from any Carrefour hypermarket across Dubai. P&G is excited to team up with Carrefour, a like-minded partner that recognizes and caters to the unique needs of consumers.
