This is not just 'let's wake up one day and change our identity' style of marketing but rather a game changing strategy with real, on-ground changes in product innovation, exploring new markets, fresh product offerings and energizing the trade channels. We did an in-depth study nationwide to understand various facets of the brand and come out with our campaign that is breaking soon.” Singhal added further.
