Parle Agro marks 30 glorious years of Frooti with a refreshed look
The rejuvenated visual identity, including logo design and packaging aims to demonstrate Frooti as bold, fearless and iconic alongwith establishing its equity amongst a much larger audience to help it acquire a wider consumer base.
This summer, Parle Agro is completely set for a national launch of the new Frooti packaging designs accompanied with pan-India marketing campaign introducing ‘The Frooti Life’ to all its consumers.
Frooti has always been way ahead of its time since its inception in 1985. Be it the launch of the first ever Tetra Pak, PET bottles, TCA triangular packs or Bottle Packs, it has always strived to remain relevant to the youth.
However, considering the huge popularity of Frooti as a kids drink, the only way to break away from the past was to undertake a radical brand makeover.
The move is in line with the brand’s vision to make in-roads into new consumer groups especially amongst the 15-30 year old young adults.
While Frooti has always held a dominant market share in the TetraPak category particularly amongst kids, the launch of fruit drinks in PET bottles in India expanded the target consumer base to teenagers and young adults. Today, the acceptance of PET and its growth is one of the fastest in beverage industry and contributes to 50% of the overall 6000Crore Mango Drink market. Keeping this at the core, the time was right to relaunch Frooti in a bold new look to be able to establish a strong foothold in the PET segment.
With this, a new structural design for Frooti PET has been developed to provide better strength, superior grip and a larger label area for branding. Even the formulation has been enhanced by increasing the food pulp so as to provide a more mouthful experience to the consumers.
The new Packaging Design which was rolled-out in mid-January for select SKUs alone has shown a growth of 60% and seen a 80% boost in visibility as of today.
Speaking on Frooti’s relaunch, Nadia Chauhan, JMD & CMO, Parle Agro Pvt. Ltd., said “Since the brand has been an integral part of everyone's growing up years, it was important to shed the traditional Frooti image and give it a bold and contemporary look to make it relatable to the youth of today and tomorrow. It is really encouraging to see markets response to the brands new visual identity, as also evident from its positive sales impact. We are extremely confident of achieving our brand and business objectives through this strategic move.”
Parle Agro collaborated with the world’s leading design and creative consultancies, Pentagram for Frooti’s packaging makeover and Sagmeister & Walsh for Frooti’s summer campaign.
Spends to the tune of INR 70 crore have been invested across a strategic mix of media vehicles that appeal to teenagers and young adults. Television will play the role of the lead medium for the campaign, where the TVC featuring Shah Rukh Khan, shot in stop motion style animation will offer a delightful visual experience. Amit Trivedi and Amitabh Bhattacharya have added a strong musical element to the TVC.
