Trailblazers of innovation in the beverage industry, Parle Agro has launched SMOODH Fruit Smoothies, yet another pioneering product under their dairy brand, SMOODH. The new launch is an everyday indulgence, offering a delicious combination of yummy fruits and the goodness of yoghurt in a variety of delightful flavors. Parle Agro has signed on the ever-charming Dulquer Salmaan as the brand ambassador of ‘SMOODH’ for southern markets of India. He joins Varun Dhawan, who is the face of the brand nationally.
Following the overwhelming success of SMOODH flavored milk, introduced in uniquely delightful flavors at a disruptive price point, Parle Agro quickly recognized what consumers were seeking. It was clear that consumers were looking for more dairy-based beverage options that are unique, delicious, and available at an affordable price. Devoted to their philosophy of giving consumers what they love while firmly keeping with their ethics of being original, Parle Agro expanded their dairy portfolio to launch SMOODH Fruit Smoothies - a category being introduced to the mass Indian market for the very first time. Bringing delicious fruits and yoghurt in fresh, never-before flavors at an unbeatable price of Rs. 10, Parle Agro, is set to win the hearts of millions of Indians once again.
SMOODH Fruit Smoothies is an ode to India’s love for beverages, yoghurt, and fruits. The culmination of all three favorites resulted in the refreshingly delicious blend of Parle Agro’s fruit Smoothies that consumers can add to their daily diet. The rich, creamy, and indulgent Smoothies come in three distinctive variants – ‘Guava Chilli’ a desi blend of sweet guava with a hint of spicy chilli, ‘Banana Rum Flavour’ bringing the sweet taste of bananas with a toasty flair and ‘Mixed Berries’ a delicious combination of strawberries, blueberries & cranberries. The flavors were carefully crafted, taking into consideration the tastes that Indians traditionally consume.
Unwavering in its mission to deliver high-quality, delicious beverages at a great value, Parle Agro has launched SMOODH Fruit Smoothies at an incredible price of Rs. 10 for an 85ml carton pack. Anticipating the requirement of a larger pack, SMOODH Fruit Smoothies is also available in convenient-to-handle PET bottles priced at Rs. 15 for a 125 ml bottle. Currently, no dairy beverage brand exists in the market at this price point in the country.
Commenting on the launch of SMOODH Fruit Smoothies, Nadia Chauhan, joint managing director and chief marketing officer, Parle Agro, said, “India is a dairy-loving country. Keeping that in mind, coupled with the huge success of Smoodh flavored milk, we’ve expanded our SMOODH dairy brand to launch another exceptional offering, SMOODH Fruit Smoothies. The range is built on our passion for understanding our consumers, listening to their needs and preferences, and introducing products that resonate with them. Fruits and yoghurt are both been immensely loved by Indians for decades. With our new offering, consumers will get to enjoy their favorite snack in a drinkable form in a variety of unique flavors at the price of Rs. 10; an offering that’s never existed in the Indian market before. SMOODH Fruit Smoothies maintains our reputation for introducing novel products to the Indian landscape. It also reinforces our commitment to introduce more ‘Good-for-you’ products for our Indian consumers.”
Speaking about the vision going forward, Chauhan added, “We are passionate about setting ambitious goals as that’s what drives us. SMOODH Fruit Smoothies is another step towards our vision of making our dairy brand, SMOODH an INR 5000 crore brand by 2025.”
