MTR Foods – The Journey of Innovation
It is no secret that packaged foods is a concept that is built on a deep understanding of consumer insight and a constant requirement of innovation. From the packet of chips that we so readily dig into, to the jams that are liberally applied on rotis and breads across households, convenience foods has taken on a significant avatar to the consumer. MTR is no stranger to how an insightful packaged product can change a consumers and manufacturers life. In the 1970as we had to shut down our iconic restaurant for a short duration and realised the role packaged foods can play, to keep up our operations. The need to stay alive coupled with the demand from consumers for our loved products, gave birth to our packaged foods business. From there came our vision a to be an indispensible companion in every kitchen to help create authentic and delicious Indian food. The consumer of today is vastly different from that of a few years ago a technology has taken over our lives a making it simpler and more complicated at the same time. Our target consumers do not have the time, technical know-how and sometimes even the inclination to make food from scratch a specifically Indian food that is perceived as cumbersome, heavy and time-consuming. We need quick solutions to our food dilemmas a similar to what we look towards technology for. Food plays an emotional role in our lives, but with the advent of this fast-paced life, we donat have the patience to wait for it. With a click of button, great tasting food should reach our doorstep, ready to consume! This is where the heavy dependence on innovation comes into play. No other industry studies the consumer as deeply as the packaged foods one. At every step of a consumers food journey, from the time they need quick meal solutions for extremely busy weekdays to their desire for comfort home-food on lazy weekends, companies like MTR need to be the consumeras provider. MTR has always studied, gained extensive insight and stayed ahead of the dynamic consumption patterns that dominate the landscape now. We conduct in-depth research on food cultures and sub cultures, ongoing trends in the industry, varying cuisines in different parts of the nation, diverse taste preferences of people and consumer requirements. The recently launched 3-Minute Breakfast Range is a great example of an innovation based on deep consumer insight. The Breakfast range is a result of reams of studies and observation, wherein it clearly showed the importance of eating breakfast. However, hectic lifestyles and increasing time-poverty have led to an increasing trend of youth skipping this meal altogether. Yet, if the time dimension and cooking-knowledge are taken out of the equation, the Indian consumer is sure to choose an Indian breakfast to a western one. Another innovation that has taken center stage in kitchens across India has been Spicy Sambar Powder. MTR Spicy Sambar Powder is the result of extensive consumer research with close to a thousand consumers and an in-depth cuisine study done in the state. The study threw up some interesting insights such as the distinct tastes of sambar made in the same home according to the palate of the consumer, meal occasions and the central dish i.e. what dish would the sambar be accompanying. MTRas new Spicy Sambar is targeted at home-makers who are always looking at delighting their family members by providing the best home-made food through breakfast, lunch and dinner and the perfect Sambar to go with it. While the classic variant has always been popular, there is a clear need for a spicy variant so as to cater to a wider usage opportunity. With constant innovations like these, MTR Foods has understood Indian dishes and the authentic recipes. However, we do face one challenge on the consumer front - adoption. Consumers resist change in familiar formats. So while they will experiment with cuisines, changes in their favorite Indian food are harder to get accepted. To combat this, our products are evolved only on truly authentic Indian recipes that can disrupt the daily consumption habits of consumers. These products represent the practice of great taste and quality, they are identifiably from their region of origin and packaged in innovative and convenient formats that make our consumers lives easier. MTR has constantly strived to preserve the vast culinary culture and subculture of India and hence the culinary secrets are protected and handed down over the generations. MTR's journey to being India's leading processed food company will continue to be marked by a constant focus on innovation and the adoption of new technology.
'Eat Good, Eat Exciting' with Faasos and Brand Capital
The entry of technology and mobile application-based services has led to a massive transformation in how the food industry operates. With consumer demographics comprising young and urban professionals, FoodTech has been amongst the most promising sectors within the Indian startup ecosystem.Segments like box delivery and on-demand meals are becoming increasingly popular, leading to an unprecedented number of startups joining the race for market share. In this vast scope of venture opportunities, Brand Capital provides marketing and advertising leverage to startups that have the potential to make it big through its branding prism. One such startup that has flourished with Brand Capital's advertising strategies is Faasos - India's leading Food-tech company. Faasos was started by Jaydeep Barman and Kallol Banerjee in 2011 with the vision of being an Indian Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brand. The company quickly expanded to multicity operations and grew to over 50 stores in the next few years. However, the challenges that the availability of retail infrastructure posed on a pure retail play was soon evident. In mid-2014, Faasos conducted a survey among its users to understand two things: awareness of the brand and whether the full-stack model was working. The survey results proved to be an eye-opener: over 76% of the respondents had never 'seen' a Faasos store, but still ordered food from it. The company embraced technology to move to "online only" demand play. This effectively meant that the company could avoid costly rentals in high footfall areas and instead operate out of dark kitchens (100% delivery orders) located anywhere in a catchment. Two new markets Hyderabad and NCR were launched without a single visible outlet. The success proved the model beyond doubt. The advent of ordering apps, however, posed the next challenge. How to be relevant for more and more food ordering missions of the customer. This lead to a key insight and the next stage of the evolution of the company. The company started experimenting with multiple brands operating out of the same kitchen and hence riding on the same supply chain and technology stack. Today the opening of a Faasos kitchen in a locality is equivalent to opening 8 new restaurants offering different cuisines. The branding made sure that they catered to different food missions as far as the consumer was concerned. Startups have risen and fallen due to weak branding and marketing strategies. And sure enough, Faasos dealt with a few of its own challenges. It was during this time the co-founders decided to partner with Brand Capital, the strategic investment arm of the Times Group, to establish an effective & sustainable branding strategy. Brand Capital decided to build on these strengths and focused on building a strong customer relationship in Tier 1 & 2 cities. They helped Faasos reach their potential target audience across India. Faasos launched their app in July 2014 and delivered this message using print media properties such as the main edition of Times of India. This created the required buzz and Faasos scaled up to unimaginable heights! Today, the company, which had six outlets in Pune in 2011, is present in 15 cities and services 30,000+ orders every day across India. 95% of their orders are received via their mobile application. Faasos has come a long way since its inception but has always stuck by their brand agenda - 'Eat Good, Eat Exciting!' It has been almost 7 years since Jaydeep Barman co-founded Faasos with Kallol Banerjee. Being in this space for over a decade, Jaydeep speaks from experience and shares the following key points for young entrepreneurs wanting to build a QSR or a food-tech startup: Entrepreneurship is, in essence, a form of protest against status quo. Be very clear what form of protest it is. A statement ( a small and personally supervised operation) or a movement ( which will involve relying on other people's judgment). Choose what you want to inspect very carefully because only what you inspect will improve and innovate. Try to solve problems at its causal level and through technology. More people and more money will only postpone the inevitable. Remind yourself every day that people generally come to work with the intention of achieving something worthwhile. Build the enabling environment. To know more about Brand Capital, visit here / Follow on LinkedIn and Twitter.

ब्यूटी सीक्रिट्स से आप भी पा सकती हैं ग्लोइंग स्किन
अगर सिलेब्रिटीज़ को देखकर आप भी यह सोचती हैं कि काश आपकी स्किन भी उनकी तरह फ्लॉलेस और ग्लोइंग होती तो आपका यह सपना सच हो सकता है और आपको इसके लिए महंगे ब्यूटी प्रॉडक्ट्स इस्तेमाल करने की जरूरत नहीं है। सिर्फ कुछ घरेलू नुस्खों को आजमाकर आप भी स्किन की हर तरह की प्रॉब्लम्स से छुटकारा पा सकती हैं... लिप बाम की जगह शहद यूज करें फेसपैक में मॉइश्चराइजर के तौर पर तो शहद का काफी इस्तेमाल होता है लेकिन होंठों को सॉफ्ट बनाने के लिए लिप बाम के तौर पर इसका कम ही इस्तेमाल होता है। आपको यकीन नहीं होगा कि फटे होंठों के लिए भी शहद नैचरल मॉइश्चराइजर का काम करता है। शहद, लिप्स के डेड सेल्स को दूर कर लिप्स को हाईड्रेट करता है। आप शहद को सीधे भी होंठों पर लगा सकती हैं या फिर चाहें तो आमंड ऑइल या ऑलिव ऑइल की कुछ बूंदें मिलाकर भी लगा सकती हैं। पानी में ऐपल साइडर विनिगर मिलाकर पिएं आपने लोगों को सुबह उठते के साथ गुनगुने पानी में शहद और नींबू का रस मिलाकर पीते तो देखा होगा लेकिन इस नुस्खे से भी ज्यादा प्रभावशाली है गुनगुने पानी में ऐपल साइडर विनिगर मिलाकर पीना। दरअसल, ज्यादातर स्किन प्रॉब्लम्स डाइजेशन से जुड़ी होती हैं। ऐसे में यह नुस्खा आपकी स्किन को बाहर से नहीं बल्कि अंदर से भी साफ और स्वच्छ रखेगा। अगर आपके चेहरे पर कील-मुंहासे हैं तो आप इसे सीधे अपने चेहरे पर भी लगा सकती हैं। बर्फ से करें मसाज अगर आपकी स्किन सेंसेटिव है और आप सनबर्न या ओपन पोर्स की समस्या से परेशान हैं तो आईस क्यूब्स आपके काम आ सकता है। चेहरे पर आईस क्यूब्स से मसाज करने से ब्ल्ड सर्क्युलेशन बेहतर होता है और कील-मुंहासे भी ठीक हो जाते हैं। साथ ही अगर आपकी आंखें थकी-थकी सी लग रही हैं तो आंखों पर भी आईस क्यूब्स से मसाज करें आराम मिलेगा। हालांकि बर्फ को सीधे स्किन पर लगाने की बजाए उसे किसी टीशू पेपर या मलमल के कपड़े में लपेटकर इस्तेमाल करें। होममेड फेसपैक्स का करें इस्तेमाल ग्लोइंग स्किन की केयर करने के सारे नुस्खे आपके किचन में मौजूद हैं। लिहाजा आप चाहें तो केमिकल बेस्ड फेसपैक्स की जगह अपनी स्किन टाइप के हिसाब से घर पर ही फेसपैक तैयार करें और उसे अपने चेहरे पर लगाएं। इनमें सबसे अच्छा है दही से बना फेसपैक जो आपकी स्किन को हाईड्रेट रखने के साथ ही स्मूथ भी बनाता है।

Welcome a cool and fresh summer with the Whirlpool 3D Cool Purafresh Inverter AC
The summers are here and we're already looking for ways to beat the heat. While staying indoors in the air-conditioned comfort of our homes is one way, it usually comes with hefty electricity bills. This is why it is important to choose an air conditioner that not only provides effective cooling with smart features, but is also easy on our pockets. In the recent years, the AC market has been buzzing with a lot of activity. Many high-end technologies have revolutionized the air conditioner. One that really takes it up a notch higher is the built-in air purifier, which has traditionally been a separate product. This has two benefits. It saves space and makes your living area look more aesthetic. Besides, it also helps save the trouble of buying and maintaining an air purifier. Keeping this in mind, the Whirlpool 3D Cool Purafresh Inverter Air Conditioner is a great purchase, offering superb value for money. Here's what makes it so: • 3D Cool Technology This is a revolutionary attribute that redefines cooling. This technology makes use of three unique air vents placed on three sides of the AC that draw hot air out of the room, giving up to 40%*^ faster cooling. The vents are located on the top and sides of the air conditioner. Coupled with a long air throw of up to 12m* and the ability to cool even at extreme temperatures of up to 55 degrees*, this intelligently designed air conditioner packs a punch. Find more about the 3D Cool AC range by clicking here • Built-in Air-Purifier The all-new 3D Cool Purafresh Inverter Air Conditioner comes with a built-in air purifier. With growing pollution levels and cases of respiratory illnesses, an air-purifier is becoming a necessity. While investing in an air-conditioner, one can make the most of it by buying one with a built-in air purifier. The 3D Cool Purafresh Inverter AC can remove PM 0.3 pollutants# at par with the best air-purifiers. In lab conditions, the purifier is effectively able to get rid of 98.6% air-borne pollutants and allergens#. In winters, the built-in air purifier can be used as a stand-alone device. An air conditioner with a built-in air-purifier can also make your life a lot more convenient, because you won't have to bother with owning, installing and servicing two separate devices. • IntelliSense Inverter Technology Inverter ACs and their in-built inverter technology have given air conditioning a cost-effective spin. Whirlpool's patented IntelliSense Inverter Technology optimizes the functioning of the compressor on the basis of the temperature set and ambient conditions. This stabilizes energy consumption and gives you the best deal on the cooling as well as the running cost. Optimal functioning leads to a lifetime saving of up to INR 43,000**. This technology also provides additional benefits such as low noise and stabilizer-free operation (150-264V**), which is a major plus point. What's more, the device operates at a low noise level (37 dB) to make for a soothing environment. In a non-inverter AC, the compressor switches off when it reaches the desired temperature. It gets switched on again once the temperature increases. This leads to higher power consumption. On the other hand, an inverter AC functions constantly, intelligently adjusting to the cooling requirements of the room to maintain optimal temperature. • 6th Sense IntelliComfort Technology Weather conditions in India are extremely hot and humid. The new range of Whirlpool ACs, powered by 6th Sense IntelliComfort Technology, have been designed to make tackling the heat and humidity a thing of the past. The range has been loaded with a smart, intuitive logic chip which ensures that the indoor unit of the AC responds to ambient humidity, i.e. the 'real feel temperature'. This coordinates with the outdoor unit to adjust the temperature and function, delivering up to 27%* energy savings. Another issue with the older variety of air conditioners is that they don't take humidity into account. Thus, in the middle of the night, the rooms feels freezing cold and very dry. IntelliComfort technology senses the 'real-feel' temperature to provide you the best ambient cooling experience. The product comes in two varieties: 1 ton and 1.5 ton. The latest cooling technology is able to deliver energy efficiency with a 3-star energy rating. With a 12m long air throw, it gives uniform cooling in every corner of the room. It gets rid of 0.3 PM pollutants and allergens. Built for the tough Indian summers, the product ensures cooling even at a temperature of 55 degree Celsius*. Design, specifications and features: The indoor unit comes with the following dimensions: 1050 (W) x 320 (H) x 235 (D) mm; Weight - 12 kg The outdoor unit comes with the following dimensions: 780 (W) x 540 (H) x 260 (D) mm; Weight - 30kg The product comes with the following features - power saver mode, comfort sleep mode, summer chill mode, auto-restart, self-diagnosis, self-clean, on-off timer, 2-way air swing The product also comes with a one-year warranty.

Ridaex Tv to fully dominate LED TV sector in India by mid 2018
Ridaex is the new brand name that sounds like Chinese, but a Fully Authentic Indian Smart TV Manufacturing Company that has gained control of the leading front in the field of consumer electronics. Ridaex Smart Tv's are Android-powered LED Televisions which was launched in 2017 in Bangalore under GotMatter E-commerce platform with the plethora of Indian consumer expectations as it was the one and only Indian made television brand. Under the " Make In India " scheme, Ridaex Technologies assembled a group of talented engineers and a set of skilled workers did research for 14 months and then pioneered the art of Television manufacturing and thus Ridaex Smart TV built it's manufacturing unit in Rajkot, Gujarat where 93% of its components are being manufactured natively and the rest 7% are being imported from Hong-Kong. Well reputably Ridaex Smart TV's has outreached the expectations of every TV enthusiasts and consumers across the country with its revolutionary design and technologically advanced features. Ridaex is the first Indian consumer electronics manufacturing company to start the most advanced technical support service via TeamViewer, Where a Ridaex engineer sitting right in his office can service your smart tv at home. Nowadays it is hardly possible/a futile attempt for a new firm or a startup to penetrate into the consumer market which is filled with dominance and lots of tough competition from the leading edge innovators of the television manufacturing industry. None the less/ in spite being a startup Ridaex TV took a daring step forward and launched its Television "Changing the way you see a Tv". Since then, it has gained a lot of trusts and emerged a winner with sales of about 35,000 TV units in about 4 months overtaking Sony and Samsung. Ridaex TV tasted the success just by launching 4 of its variants, 32 inches RE-1320, 42 inches RE-1420, 50 inches RE-1500(FHD TV) and 50 inch RE-1500+ ( Best Selling 4K TV in India 2017) in under 4 months. Ridaex Smart TV outsold the sales of Sony, Samsung, Vu Tv just by launching these 4 variants while the big giants have a whole lot of different TV variants under their belt but still could not reach Ridaex's level of success. GotMatter is planning to launch its 55 and 60 inches variants by the mid of January 2018 and also have plans of launching its curved TVs soon in the future days. Ridaex TV is gaining a lot of reputation and trust of the consumers as it is cruising through as the top-selling economical SMART TV in India. People start to believe in a product when they get to know the product on which they are investing their wealth does not go in vain and when they get the product as promised a trust is developed and this is the exact kind of trust that every seller expects to have with their consumer. In the beginning, it was very tough even for Ridaex to gain the trust of the consumers but somehow managed with its Android operating system and technologically advanced specifications which are no lesser than any Sony or Samsung TV in comparison except for the size. The Indian consumers were also skeptical about buying the Ridaex TV as it was made in India and people had a blind belief that a product made in India would not be worth buying but Ridaex TV proved it wrong by offering huge offers and cash backs attracting a lot of consumers to give it a try and it ended up being the top 50 inch LED TV of 2017 by selling early 14k 50 inch TVs. People believed Ridaex for offering top class features at the economical price and Ridaex cultivated a thought in people's head, "why? Spending so much on a TV when you are getting the same kind of TV at a very lower price". There are many TV manufacturers some very reputed some are fading away and some still struggling to find its way through the consumer crowd but the only one who always stands on top is the one who can provide the best quality along with compact features and still keep the price economical. Ridaex TV has already triumphed over and is the top best alternate for Sony, Samsung, Vu Tv and many other TV manufacturers and plans to stay ahead, that way in the upcoming years too. The possibilities of Ridaex is vast and ever-increasing and the urge to innovate something new keeps GotMatter ahead of everyone in the field of consumer electronics following the motto of "Changing the way you see a Tv" and with its smart features and economical price Ridaex TVs are sure not settling down anytime soon without a rumble with tech giants.
