First prize went to Team Can – a diverse mix of people from Nelson, Dunedin and Wellington who were working on how to create a tighter end-customer connection with Pic’s Peanut Butter’s consumers globally.

The team produced an Augmented Reality (AR) solution, similar to Pokémon Go, that creates a fun and engaging way for consumers to engage with Pic’s Peanut Butter, and also provides the owner, Pic Picot with the ability to know who his customers are and engage with them to help with product feedback and enhancement.

The idea is an app that can help engage and connect consumers of Pic’s Peanut Butter with a virtual Pic or even, Pic himself. The team won $2,000 prize money for winning the event.
