A nalysis


  • ITC has the most popular brands of cigarettes in India.

    • The sale takes place from the largest of retailers like Big Bazaar, Spencers to the smallest of paanwalas at every nook and corner in India.

    • Thus ITC has deeply penetrated the Indian cigarette market.

  • With an already established distribution channel for cigarettes, ITC is also selling safety matches, which is complementary to both the cigarettes and agarbattis.

  • The retailers and paanwalas are also ready to stock ITC’s candies, potato chips and finger snacks because of the higher margin as compared to Frito lays, which is its biggest rival in potato chips and finger snacks segment.

A nalysis1


  • By entering into the branded Indian biscuit industry there was a business synergy.

    • ITC was already value-adding to wheat with its branded atta presence. By entering the biscuits segment, it improved its bottom-line further.

    • The company used its existing network of convenience stores -- the company’s name for the hole-in-the-wall pan-beedi shops-- for Sunfeast.

    • The company says the brand is now available in nearly 1.8 million outlets.

    • Sunfeast captured around 7% in mere 3 years since its launch in 2003
