Brand Update : Sunfeast

In a unique marketing move, FMCG major ITC has launched a new range of Sunfeast Biscuits: Sunfeast Sachin's Fit Kit. The brand's uniqueness lies in the fact that first time in India a product is being co-created by the company and the brand ambassador. In a world cup Googly , Sunfeast has not only roped in Sachin as a brand ambassador but also bought in a variant of a different kind.

Sunfeast Sachin's Fit Kit is the first Indian brand where the celebrity has been actively involved in the product development. Sachin has shared his dietary regimen which has helped him to stay in top fitness for more than 17 years ,with the company and the product was developed taking inputs from the dietary regime. The new variant is branded as Sunfeast Sachin's Fit Kit.

Sachin's Fit Kit comes in two variants : Vitamin and Protein Enriched and Multi-Grain. The Vitamin and Protein biscuit has Vitamin B1 B2 B5,B6 & B12 in it. The Multi-Grain biscuits has 6 grains in it viz Barley,oats, raggi,corn and wheat. The range retails for Rs 5 for 75gms and Rs 10 for 100gms.
The brand is promoted by Sachin and TVC's are on air now .The brand uses the taglines " Ab Har Ghar mein Sachin" translated to "Sachin in everyhouse" and also " Sachin ne Banaya" translated to : " Made By Sachin". The ads are made by Prahlad Kakkar for Ulka. The TG as I infer from the TVC is kids. The rationale of the current high profile heavy investment product is the understanding that Indian consumers are getting more health conscious. According to media reports, a part of the sales revenue will go to Sachin as a Royalty apart from the fee for endorsement.
The ordinary range of Sunfeast is endorsed by ShahRukh Khan (Watch TVC Here).The brand is leaving no stones behind and Sachin and SRK endorsing the same brand gives it an Awesome leverage
