dentsuMB, the integrated creative agency from dentsu India, has won the mandate for the branded portfolio of WayCool Foods, India's largest & fastest growing agri-commerce company. The account will be serviced from the agency’s Chennai office.
For the record, WayCool Foods has launched a range of branded food products across its portfolio of staples, dairy products and fresh produce. Formed with the vision ‘to be the most efficient, impactful and sustainable agri-commerce platform’, the company has seen unprecedented growth and is set to expand its reach to domestic as well as select international markets. The company has initiated this in response to the demand from consumers for branded staples and food products, which grew particularly during Covid. This has further resulted in a number of retailers switching from loosely sold products to packed and branded ones. WayCool Foods intends to use its direct sourcing advantage, as well as its network of state-of-the-art processing and distribution facilities, to ensure quality, consistency and availability across retail stores in its target markets for its range of branded products.
As per the mandate, dentsuMB will be responsible for managing the brand strategy and developing creative solutions across the brand portfolio.
