FMCG brands should find a new way to work, say experts



Big grocery retailers like Amazon and Big Basket are trying to cash on their own private label brands, as customers look for cheaper options due to the advent of economic crisis.

FMCG brands, which used to rely on the traditional modes of selling through their supply chain partners, should now find new trajectories to sell to the consumer. This statement comes as the brand’s usual partners struggle to create demand in the market amid the coronavirus crisis. According to Deepak Shahdadpuri, managing director of investment firm DSG Consumer Partners, food retailers should now follow a direct-to-consumer approach.

Big grocery retailers like Amazon and Big Basket are trying to cash on their own private label brands, as customers look for cheaper options due to the advent of economic crisis. Therefore, new, smaller retailers will have to pave way for themselves to reach out to the customers. “The likes of BigBasket are going full hog on private labels, across categories. This is the perfect time to push for private labels, because again the data tells you that people aren’t buying goods, primarily because of access, which has a very, very big part to play at this stage in the cycle,” said Shahdadpuri, one of the leading consumer-focused investors in the Indian startup ecosystem.

Alerted by this, yogurt brand Epigamia and cold-press juice maker Raw Pressery,  under the DSG Consumer Partner’s portfolio, starting selling the products on their official websites.

“The big online retailers were not being able to service their clients. We don’t want to compete with the likes of Flipkart or Big-Basket, who also sell our products. But at this stage, they themselves have an issue fulfilling orders. No one’s getting upset. If you’re a brand, you must consider it,” Shahdadpuri said.

Ranveer Brar is helping Street food vendors through his million followers



The celebrity chef Ranveer Brar has just recently hit 1 million followers on Instagram and is using this opportunity to mark the beginning of his new project.  The project is to help street-food sellers all over the country to restart their business in the post-pandemic world. The project is in association with the National Association of Street Vendors of India or also known as Nasvi.

Brar says that he intends to celebrate both of these milestones by taking up a new cause — one that includes returning to society. To this end, Ranveer will use his global status on social media to raise awareness and funds for these pan-India training modules, some of which he will also conduct directly through Zoom. The intention is to inspire more vendors to come forward for the preparation, on completion of which they are offered a chance for a proper business footing via an FSSAI certificate + a starter kit consisting of an apron, a pair of gloves, a sanitizer and a mask. Brar also wants to enable clients to share self-curated, sanitization kits through # MakingMillionCount.

Brar also wants to encourage patrons to share self-curated sanitization kits with their favourite roadside suppliers through # MakingMillionCount to encourage and inspire them back to work.

Brar, a boy from Lucknow, has a long association with the street food community for which the city is renowned. “You crave street food when you are young. Perhaps far later can you learn to love home-cooking, “he says.” Food on the street is near to my heart because of the legacies, magic and stories we get with every bite. He is partial to Varanasi’s chaat and Kachori, Lucknow’s tundey kababs or even Old Delhi’s famous chole bhature.

By starting this program, he is helping such small vendors to stand up on their own. Many customers are now not interested in visiting these street shops anymore, by providing proper sanitation equipment it will jump-start their business.
