Changing preferences

Mayank Shah, Sr. Category Head, Parle Products, said, “Branded wheat flour is one of the largest segments in the foods industry and the majority of the demand is currently being met by local mills or neighbourhood chakkis. The urban markets lead in the consumption of packaged atta, making it largely an urban phenomenon. But with the onset of the pandemic, the need for hygienically ground wheat flour and an assurance of trusted brand is driving consumers in the Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities to switch to branded atta.”

“We aim to reach the remotest household in the country to provide hygienically ground atta and help consumers switch to healthy options”.

“Made from specially sourced, select good quality wheat, Parle G Chakki Atta will be a game changer in the market that will add to our consumers’ health in the long run.,” he added.
