MPG retains Reckitt Benckiser’s media biz

MPG India has retained the media business of Reckitt Benckiser, the owner of brands such as Vanish, Veet, Clearasil and Dettol. MPG will be doing media planning and buying for Reckitt Benckiser. The account size is estimated at Rs 200 crore. MPG has been handling the business in India for the last four years since 2004.
