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.
