Speaking about the new launch Sanjana Desai, Head - Business Development, Mother’s Recipe and ELMAC brand said, “A key principle for modern product packaging is that the easier it is to use a product, the more likely it will be accepted by consumers. The demands of the FMCG segment are evolving every- day and consumers are seeking convenience and better packaged products. As a result, we need to continuously innovate in line with the growing consumer expectations while providing our customers with only the best quality & tastiest of products. Our new Ginger Garlic Tub is in line with our aim to liberate our consumers, help them save time and provide convenience while maintaining traditional taste.”

“We have always given utmost priority to consumer convenience and product quality while developing new products. The spout packs had added some convenience in the category, However, retaining the authentic taste of the paste and reducing wastage was a challenge. The new product packaging addresses these issues providing authentic taste without any preservatives (NO sodium benzoate {chemical preservative}) and absolutely zero wastage, as consumer can scoop it out as per their requirement & store it easily.” Sanjana added.
