Indigo iStrat wins Digital duties of Bikanervala Foods

Indigo iStrat has bagged the  digital mandate of Bikanervala Foods for its two brands - Bikanervala, multi cuisine restaurant cum sweets outlet chain & for its packaged snacks brand Bikano. The agency won the digital mandate on the back of a multi-agency pitch. The mandate involves full service digital business for its India operations, and will see Indigo iStrat handle digital creative and media duties along with its social media presence.

Commenting about the development Manish Aggarwal, Director – Bikanervala Foods said, “Bikanervala and Bikano has been a household name for many years. We are loved for bringing together best quality, delicious flavours from different corners of India and serving it at competitive prices. As a brand, we understand and value our customers; so if they are online, why shouldn’t we be there too? The way ahead is to strengthen our presence on digital, making sure we are relevant to our customers where they are as they journey down their decision making path.”

Hitesh Ranot, Digital Marketing Manager, Bikanervala Foods, said, “Building brands Bikanervala & Bikano further means building effective strategies for better, sharper customer engagement. Customers are less responsive to the one-way marketing messages on digital channels today. Most companies uses old "frequency and reach" marketing to cover audience with extensive messaging as possible. This approach is losing power. We, with Indigo iStrat, want digital marketing to create an experience that will deliver value to customers. We are excited to partner with Indigo iStrat and build a two way marketing that will give us a competitive advantage.”

Commenting on the account win, Sonya Sahni, Chief Strategy Officer, Indigo iStrat said, “We are excited to be partnering with one of India’s most loved food brands. I believe there are multiple opportunities to explore with Bikanervala. The idea is to create & build brand love through digital and drive saliency for the brand.”

Founded in 1950, Bikanervala is one of India's most prominent families in the business of traditional hospitality products like Sweets and Namkeens. Bikanervala Foods Pvt Ltd is an ISO 9001:2000, HACCP and SQF 2000cm certified company with four modern manufacturing units in the NCR and a chain of 88 outlets in India and abroad, serving vegetarian North Indian, South Indian, Continental, Chinese cuisine and Fast food along with a vast variety of traditional Indian sweets and snacks.
