exchange4media reached out to all stakeholders for official comments, but did not receive any until the filing of this story.
In an earlier interview with exchange4media, Ali Harris Shere, VP-Marketing at Britannia, had pointed out that the biscuit major was looking to align with big shifts taking place in the industry, and according to reliable sources, the call for media review could be a step in that direction.
“There are some big shifts happening in the consumer world and we track those shifts and we are moving in the same direction. At 100, we really thought we should reset ourselves and have the vision going forward,” Shere had stated.
