Havas Media wins integrated media mandate for Swiggy

Havas Media Group, India has bagged the integrated media mandate for online food ordering and delivery platform, Swiggy, following a multi-agency pitch.

The account will be handled out of the Bengaluru office led by Saurabh Jain, Vice President - South, Havas Media India.

Founded by Sriharsha Majety, Nandan Reddy and Rahul Jaimini in August 2014, Swiggy is a Bengaluru based online food ordering marketplace. A single window for ordering from a wide range of restaurants, Swiggy has its own delivery fleet enabling it to offer customers several convenient features.

Speaking on the association, Srivats TS, VP- Marketing, Swiggy, said “We are excited about this partnership and look forward to working with Havas. Swiggy is a consumer centric brand that is driven by the goal of delivering the best possible consumer experience always across all our channels. Working with Havas’ media planning and buying experience and capabilities is another strong step in this direction, enabling us to get our message out to consumers effectively and efficiently. We look forward to a long and fulfilling partnership with them.’’

Anita Nayyar, CEO, Havas Media Group, India and South, said, “The growing appetite among Indians for a wider choice, convenience of delivery and a seamless experience from restaurant to plate is opening a new avenue for brands looking at growing rapidly and enhancing their customer base. Swiggy has played a meaningful role in customers' lives in a short span of time; it is a great brand in a targeted but high potential category. We are honoured to take on the mandate of a yet another innovative and entrepreneurial Indian brand.”

“Swiggy is a dynamic brand which thrives on agility and innovation, which is also the philosophy at Havas Media Group. At play will be Havas Media Group's integrated media skills centered on digital and the 'Meaningful Brands' framework, which together will map the brand chart for Swiggy. We look forward to working with the team. This win further bolsters our e-commerce portfolio, which already has big names like Quikr, Yepme, Bluestone, Clovia and MoneyView to name a few,” added Mohit Joshi, Managing Director, Havas Media Group, India.
