Speaks  to ET 

ITC Foods, the maker of Bingo! Chips, Sunfeast biscuits and Yippee! Noodles, has gained a reputation of being a disruptive player. Contributing 12-13% to its parent's revenue, the division turned the corner last fiscal. Its boss, chief executive Chitranjan Dar , though, is reluctant to take all the credit. He says he took over when brands were established and the division only needed consolidation.

The strength of ITC Foods lies in sourcing staples through its e-choupal system that offers direct contact with farmers and a distribution channel that piggybacks on the equity enjoyed by Wills cigarettes across corner outlets. Dar, who has had a three-decade-run at the cigarettes-to-hotels group, tells Sarah Jacob how the division is now focused on a high-margin, value-added products strategy and is working on developing healthier offerings.

 Excerpts from an interview:

Where does Sunfeast stand in the biscuits segment?


Our market share is a third of what Britannia and Parle
Products have. (Industry estimates peg Sunfeast's market share at 11%).
We are looking at profitable growth by following a higher margin,
value-added strategy. We have been focusing on the mid-market and
premium segment and less on glucose biscuits. We launched Marie oats,
Special cookies, premium creams, choco fills and relaunched Marie and
Dark Fantasy.
