Grey Group India wins creative duties of Parakh Agro

Parakh Agro Industries, (formerly known as Parakh Foods) Indian manufacturers of FMCG commodities, has assigned Grey Group India to handle its creative duties, across advertising, digital solutions, retail design and activation. The agency won the business in a multi-agency pitch process.

Parakh is looking at expanding its distribution and taking the brand national. Commenting on the development, Prakash Parakh, Chairman, Parakh Agro said, “At Parakh Agro we are passionate about providing goodness from traditionally consumed staples to the colossal Indian market through the most advanced hygienic processes. Looking for the right strategic and creative partner was a challenge as we had to filter down to the agency that understands our vision and hence build ideas from its core. The team at Grey has worked hard to win this role and with them on board, we are excited and confident about winning hearts for our brand Samrat around the nation.”

As the company is headquartered in Pune, the agency’s Mumbai office will handle the account. Vineet Singh,Vice President and Client Services Director said, “Grey is privileged to work with one of India’s finest , ‘Made In India’ brands. Staples are a hugely challenging category. Branded staples consist of just two per cent of the entire universe. The challenge for us is to wean people away from traditional chakkiwallas and unbranded staples sold by neighbourhood kiranas.”
