 A report

While recent statistics relate consumer spending to poverty status, the country's Rs 15,000-crore biscuits market is throwing light on yet another consumption story. Indians are spending as much on cookies as they are on biscuits that are staple fare, including Glucose, Marie and Milk. Both categories now command 24 per cent each of the consumer spend.

Share dips

She said that the category's share has dipped from one-third of the market it commanded two years back, while the cookies' share has shot up from the 12 per cent it commanded two years back. “We realise that consumers are looking for food for pleasure but are not willing to give up on nutrition,” said Ms Narasimhan.

Thus, to keep consumer interests alive in the declining mass market biscuit segment, Britannia is re-launching its rusks range.
