Cargill India follows multi brand approach & micro-marketing strategy to win in market place. Looking at the business dynamics, in last 2 years we have rejigged our portfolio and brand positioning. We thank our earlier agencies Leo Burnett and FCB Ulka, who helped us to re-position & re-launch our brands. I really appreciate their efforts in helping us evolve our campaigns & make them noticeable. We are extremely choosy of our approach to businesses & marketing. While our products and brands are doing well in top league, we believe customized campaign approach is pivotal for success in Edible Oil Market. The brief we shared and the ideas proposed by Lowe Lintas were in complete sync with the ethos of the brands which were pitched for. We are excited on this association to lead all our brands to a leadership position in consumer’s hearts and minds“.
