Q 6 lndia’s largest retailer future group has partnered with Disney to launch the country’s
first cookies for kids under its own brand-Brand Tasty Treat. The retailer feels that while the cookie sub-segment is growing three tirnes faster than the overall biscuits market, the kids segment is virtually untapped. With this launch, future group is targetin g 20% of the cookie category in over 200 Big Bazaar stores.

Kids are driving consumption in this category. Future Group has partnered wiih Disney to leverage this insight, launching an exclusive range of “Kidz Cookies” with popular Disney characters. The product is developed with Unibic making it world class in quality.
Most of the companies including Parle, Britannia and ITC have also been aggressive, in the high margin segment to offset rising raw material costs.
