DS Foods Ltd., the marketers of popular brands Catch and PassPass mouth freshner are making a foray in the packaged tea market by launching 'Catch Uttranchal' in the super premium blend segment.
The 15-year-old Catch brand was extended to spices some time back. Prior to that it was available in the table sprinkler avatar of popular condiments besides salt and pepper. The company is entering into a joint venture the government of Uttranchal to expand tea plantations at Uttranchal and promote its unique blend nationwide. Ashok Aggarwal, the President of Rs.700 crore DS Group Ltd. said, "Our association with the Government of Uttranchal in jointly bringing Catch Uttranchal Tea is a step to create new market contours through introducing a super-rich tea blend, which was somewhat lost in history."
DS Foods would do the product-development, branding, marketing, advertising & distribution support.
