Scarecrow wins the creative duties of Wagh Bakri Tea

After a multi-agency pitch, Scarecrow Communications was awarded the creative mandate for Wagh Bakri Tea   portfolio, which includes the flagship brand Wagh Bakri Tea and Good Morning Premium Tea . The creative duties will be handled by the Mumbai office.

It’s a significant move, considering the fact that Wagh Bakri had not changed their agency in 10  long years. Triton Communications was the previous incumbent agency. 

Reacting to this win Manish Bhatt, Founder Director of Scarecrow Communications said, “Wagh Bakri isn’t just any brand it’s a 122 year old tea brand. And had a special connection with Mahatma Gandhi. It has been a part of the lives of Indians for over three generations. And it is a special feeling to be associated with such a heritage brand.

Arunava Sengupta, Founder Director of Scarecrow Communications added, “Wagh Bakri is one brand which has not rested on its past laurels. Instead, they have always evolved with the times and focussed on expanding their reach. We are thrilled to partner them in this exciting journey.”

Parag Desai, Executive Director of Wagh Bakri said, “It was a big move for us to call a pitch considering our aggressive plans in various markets (in India)  and verticals and countries. We are India’s largest privately held packaged tea Group and intend to build our market share in the premium tea category.”

Yogesh Shinde, Sr, GM Marketing, Wagh Bakri added, “We felt Scarecrow had hit the right chord. Their thought process on contemporizing the brand thought, creative connect, out of box thinking and the team’s passion, made them an obvious choice. Our next campaign, which is currently under production, has been conceived by Scarecrow Communications and will be released very soon.”

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
