Ruchi aims to turn Nutrela into Rs 5,000-cr brand in 5 yrs

Kolkata, Feb 4 (PTI) Ruchi Soya Industries today said it aims to expand the Nutrela brand five-fold to Rs 5,000 crore in the next five years.
Stating that Nutrela was a small brand compared to the Ruchi brand which accounted for sale of Rs 7,000-8,000 crore, Ruchi Soya AVP Marketing Sandipan Ghosh said the company wanted to make Nutrela a Rs 5,000 crore brand in the next five years from Rs 1,000-1,200 crore now.

On reports of raids by the Mumbai income tax authorities on the group, the company did not forsee any hurdle towards its growth target. “No,” Ghosh said when asked whether the raids would have any adverse impact on growth. Ghosh said the existing business of Nutrela would grow by around 20 per cent year on year and the company planned to introduce more products.

“Currently, we are carrying out market research to enter new product categories under Nutrela brand,” he said. The brand was currently restricted to soya products, edible oil and margarine.

In 2008, the company had made an attempt to foray into beverage from soya but failed to get the desired response. Ghosh said Nutrela offered high EBITA margin of 10-15 per cent for the company among other products.

Nutrela TVC


Launch of TVC and radio Jingle to tap Bengali market; veteran actor Soumitra Chatterjee to sing a jingle for the new campaign.

Ruchi Soya Industries is set to target the West Bengal market with an aggressive marketing campaign for their premium brand, Nutrela Kacchi Ghani Mustard Oil. The state accounts for over a third (around Rs 110 crore) of the Rs 300-crore mustard oil market in the country.

With the intent of reaching out to Bengali masses, the company is also planning to launch a 35-second TVC and a 25-second radio jingle this month. With the campaign, the company aims to create a bridge between the brand and true ‘Bangaliaana’, using a thoroughly Bengali concept, ‘Jagai Bangaliana’, which aims at evoking the authentic taste of food every time they use Nutrela Kacchi Ghani mustard oil.

The idea revolves around reviving and rejuvenating this ‘Bangaliaana’ and brings back the fading Bengali persona and spirit, reminding them of their roots. The campaign largely aims to reawaken authentic taste of Bengali food. It evokes the rich culture and tradition of the state and exhorting the people of Bengal to rediscover the pride of eating authentic Bengali food.

‘Bangaliyana’ is a tradition that has been passed on from one generation to the next in every Bengali family over the past century. It is a way of life as in the weekend ‘adda’, inviting friends and family to the house and discussing music, literature, politics, food, culture, history and then savouring authentic home cooked Bengali cuisine together. ‘Bangaliyana’ is also in celebrating togetherness and appreciation of Rabindrasangeet or Sumoner ‘gaan’ or Bangla ‘natok’ and even discussing Shakespeare, and most importantly how good the food was at the last brunch party.

Strengthening this connect further, the company has roped in veteran Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee to sing a jingle for the new radio campaign.

“We are sure that the campaign will rejuvenate the fading spirit of ‘Bangaliyana’ and the need for ‘kacchi ghani’ mustard oil as the predominant cooking medium. We are extremely excited about reviving ‘Bangaliyana’ and more so being able to make Soumitra Chaterjee partake in bringing the idea alive by singing a song for us,” said Sandipan Ghosh, Assistant Vice-President Marketing, Consumer Brands Division, RSIL.

The television and radio campaign has been conceptualized and developed by Hammer Communications in New Delhi.

The TVC and radio campaign will be simultaneously rolled out in Bengal and Assam. The 360 degree clamour marketing campaign is the company’s first campaign centred around the three-year-old mustard oil brand. Bihar and Jharkhand are next in the company’s radar.
