Leo Burnett has bagged the communication duties for the entire product portfolio of General Mills following a multi-agency pitch. The agency had previously worked on the launch of Pillsbury for the company in India.
Salil Murthy, marketing director, General Mills India, said, “Getting the right creative partners on board is an important first step in realising our growth potential in India. There is incredible opportunity for us as Indian consumers are increasingly opting for better quality food products that make their lives healthier, easier and richer. Our products across Pillsbury Atta, Cake Mixes, Chocolate Spreads and RTC food mixes deliver exceptionally well on providing great taste and convenience in cooking with our unique quick and easy to prepare food solutions. Looking ahead, we will expand our product portfolio and back that with strategic communication to truly win with consumers. Leo Burnett is best placed with capabilities across the communication spectrum to deliver that and we hope to see some exciting integrated work.”
Saurabh Varma, CEO – South Asia, Leo Burnett, added, “In the era of changing consumer trends and lifestyles, we have a clear mandate to redefine the purpose for General Mills and boost consumer preference and loyalty for all their brands, namely – Pillsbury, Nature Valley, Betty Crocker and more. Our team is eager to partner the company and create some magic for their brands through our HumanKind approach across ATL, digital, retail, activation and shopper.”
