Future to retail its products 5.5.2014 Asian Age: Business

Future Group is contemplating retailing its private brands like Tasty Treat, Clean Mate, Fresh & Pure and Sach through channels other than its own stores of Big Bazaar and KB’s Fair Price. “Right now our private brands are sold only in Future Group owned formats but we will look at retailing private brands in future,” Food Bazaar CEO Devendra Chawla said.

Mr Chawla said these private brands are very strong but he refused to share financial numbers. “In FMCG, our private brands have 15-20 per cent market share and in home and cleaning, our private brands have 30-35 per cent market share. It is a sizeable business for us,” he said.

Talking about the need for private brands, Mr Chawla said, “We push our private brands not just for higher margins, India is under-branded and there is need and space for more brands.” Future Group ro-ped in cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and co-created brand ‘Sach’. Sach products include toothpaste and bathing bars.
