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.

The group released the Little Hearts online-only campaign, #BreakSomeHearts, early this year and is on the path to make many more of its brands available on the digital platform
