Harvest Gold -Success story retold

It  all began  1993  In capital  city  of  Delhi  . A brand  called  Harvest Gold  was created  with  objective  to provide  quality  bread  to  consumers . Earlier  we had monopoly of two bread manufacturers  Britannia  and Modern . Demand was high  and  supply  short   hence  what ever was produced was bought without  any choice .Bread  where  sold in wax  papers .People used  to  stand in line for hours  for  delivery vans to get  their loaves  such was the  dominance  of  Britannia  and Modern  breads.Other  competitors  like Bakeman  and Tazza Bread  were non -existent .

The team of  Adil  Hassan  and Taab Siddiqui   then  commissioned  their plant at Bhiwadi  in Year 1993  with  the name  of  Harvest gold foods  India pvt ltd. The product  was instant  hit . This was a case  where  a local player  has  taken on  Big brand  and  was leader  in the market  within span of one - two  year of  launch .


What  differentiated  Harvest  gold from other  brands  was
