Flashed Yesterday: Discovery Communications and FoodFood partnership called off

In May this year, Discovery Communications and FoodFood announced that Discovery Communications has bought majority stake in celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s TV channel FoodFood.

However this partnership has been called off, "At this time, we can confirm that we are not entering into the partnership with FoodFood as announced earlier this year. India remains a global priority market for Discovery and we will continue to explore opportunities as we expand our business and accelerate our strategic growth investments here." said Discovery Communications in a company statement when exchange4media reached out to them on this matter. 

At the time of filing the report however we did not receive a response from FoodFood on this matter.

FoodFood was launched in 2011 via Turmeric Vision Pvt. Ltd as a JV between Sanjeev Kapoor, Astro Overseas Ltd and Mogae Consultants.

Kranti Gada joined the family business at Shemaroo in 2006 after a successful stint of over two years in marketing at Pepsi Co. She has been associated with the company for 12 years.
