Perfetti Van Melle Launches India’s first Chatpata Gum
Perfetti Van Melle India introduces India’s first chatpata gum with the launch of the all new Center Fruit Chatpata Sparkiez. This product launch is yet another endorsement to Perfetti Van Melle India (PVMI) leading the innovations bandwagon in the confectionery category in the country.
This innovative product with a unique combination of Gum,Jelly filling and Tangy taste has been indigenously developed in India to offer consumers a unique experience with an Indian twist. The product is available in a pack of 3 pieces priced at Rs 5.
The roll-out of Center Fruit Chatpata Sparkiez is being supported by an announcer communication which will form the pillar of the 360-degree campaign. The communication further builds on the brand’s existing positioning of “Mood Transformation” rolled out last year. Along with the television advertisement the launch is being supported on digital platforms as well as cinema in select markets.
The story in the Center Fruit Chatpata Sparkiez launch communication is centered on the Indian tradition “Of touching feet and taking blessings” from elders (especially family/relatives). While it is a customary tradition in the country, it can often get boring for teens, if one must do it multiple times and something that everyone faces at some point of time in their teenage life. The protagonist consumes Center Fruit Sparkiez which transforms his mood and helps him come out of the boring situation in a fun and quirky manner.
