Parle Kismi New Logo

Parle Products, India’s leading biscuits and confectionery manufacturer, has rolled out a change in the “kissing couple” logo digitally for the iconic Kismi toffee. The change in logo denotes the message of social distancing during a pandemic crisis. This iconic logo which was launched in 1963, now showcases the popular couple apart from each other on all social media platforms to denote the message of social distancing to stay safe during the pandemic.

Giving a creative push to educate people on the need for social distancing, Kismi will put a bit of extra distance in the logo i.e, the kissing couples on the logo would practice social distancing from each other to keep each other safe. Kismi has always stood as an enabler in bringing about small moments of happiness in the lives of its consumers and today, it is one of the few brands in the Indian foods space to change the logo on social media to encourage couples and youth to consciously opt for time apart for a while without compromising on the togetherness of being in love.
