Licious Launches India's First Meat-Based Spread Range

 
·       With presence across raw meat & seafood, marinades and RTE, Licious is India's first Meat Food brand

·       Aims at disrupting the ready-to-eat category by diversifying  into the $800-million spreads market

Consolidating its position as India’s first and only Meat Food Brand, Licious announced its foray into packaged food category with the launch of its latest innovation.The company launched a first-of-its-kind ‘meat-based-spreads’ that will transform the way we consume meat in India. In its fifth year of operations, Licious is entering a new phase of growth with product diversification and exciting line-up of launches planned through the year. The product was unveiled by Bollywood celebrity, Shilpa Shetty Kundra in a gala gathering at Four Seasons Hotel, Mumbai.
Speaking at the launch, Abhay Hanjura and Vivek Gupta, Founders, Licious, said, “From selling a range of fresh and raw meat products online, we have evolved not only in terms of core offerings in the raw and fresh meat category, but also entered the ready-to-cook (RTC) and ready-to-eat (RTE) categories with pre-marinated meats and bottled spreads. We envisage a promising omni-channel play for our range of products. We are building a brand in a highly fragmented and unorganised space. Our vision is to create a loved consumer meat brand.”
The spreads market is witnessing robust growth due to changing consumer tastes, expanding middle-class population and increasing demand for tasty and healthy food products. Today, Licious has kick-started an ambitious diversification journey with the launch of India’s first meaty spreads, strengthening our position as a consumer product company. The RTE category is an important growth engine. As the company diversifies into varied categories under the packaged food segment, our target is to acquire 15 per cent of the market share in the next three years,” said the founders.
Over the the next three years, Licious is aiming at growing their packaged food business to contribute to 20 per cent of the overall business.
The chief guest for the event, Shilpa Shetty Kundrasaid, “As a mother and health-conscious individual, I am aware of the daily food battles that our busy lifestyles challenge us with. We are what we eat, goes the saying. So, quality is of paramount importance. I’m glad that a home-grown consumer brand like Licious - a meat food company playing in multiple categories - is exploring new frontiers of food innovation in terms of world-class products that offer wholesome nutrition, bringing together the best of health and taste. I’m a fan of their all-natural meat-based spreads. It’s going to be the new staple in my household.”
Licious meat spreads will be available in key offline and online stores across all markets. Available in 30 gms and 200 gms packets, the products are priced at Rs 30 and Rs 199 respectively.


Licious was founded in 2015 in Bengaluru as an online brand that sells raw meat products like chicken, sea-food, red meat, pre-marinated meat, and gourmet meat-based products. The company has revolutionised the traditionally unorganised market by delivering fresh and hygienic meat at the doorstep of consumers within 120 minutes of ordering. Today, the company also offers a range of value-added products under the RTC and RTE categories.
Currently, Licious is present in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Delhi-NCR, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Pune and Chennai. Over the coming months, the plan is to establish a national presence as India’s first omni-channel brand in the meat space.
The spreads category in India, valued at $800-million, is growing at a steady rate of 16 per cent. Butter, jams, chocolate spreads and mayo-based spreads have been the key products, with little on offer for the meat lovers.  Given that 72 per cent Indians consume meat, for Licious, the gap in the spreads category presents a huge opportunity. As India’s first consumer unicorn in the making, Licious is all set to revolutionise this category, starting with six uniquely flavoured meat spreads- butter chicken, continental chicken, honey-mustard chicken, shawarma chicken, sweet tamarind chicken and herby-tomato chicken.
The USP of Licious’ meat spreads are presence of generous amount of freshly cooked real chicken chunks. These meat spreads contain 35 percent of chicken chunks per 100 gms of the product such that there meat in every bite. Not only are they a natural source of protein but also they are free of artificial preservatives, flavours and colours. They contain 0% making them the perfect choice for health-conscious consumers. The spreads can be used with bases like bread, paratha, chapatti, and salads to make wholesome sandwiches, wraps and salads.

Wadia Hospital opened its first Outreach OPD in Nashik for children with congenital heart disease

 

~The Outreach OPD will be introduced in Nashik, in association with Vijan Hospital & Research Centre (Nashik)~
~Heart specialists from Wadia Hospital will visit the OPD on alternate Sundays, twice a month~
~Till now, the hospital has treated more than 1500 cases, out of which 150 were only from Northern Maharashtra, this OPD will be a boon for children with heart ailments~

 Wadia Hospitals are heritage legendary leading institutions of our country, treating patients from all over India, and abroad. By catering to the needs of paediatric patients in Nasik and North Maharashtra, the hospital has joined hands with Vijan Hospital & Research Centre (VHRC), to introduce Outreach OPDs. It is a first-of-its-kind initiative by the hospital, to provide high-end clinical diagnosis and consultation by heart specialists for paediatric patients.

Congenital heart disease, also called as congenital heart defect, is a heart abnormality present at birth. This cardiac disease is found in 0.16 to 0.36 amongst 1000 live neonates, and is also responsible for 25% of all cardiac deaths occurring within the first week after birth. Hence, BJWHC, has taken an initiative, and launched an Outreach OPD in Nashik and entire North Maharashtra. This would be a boon for children with heart ailments, as they will be offered a state-of-the-art care at subsidised cost at Bai Jerbai Hospital for Children, Mumbai.

Dr Minnie Bodhanwala, CEO, Wadia Hospitals, Parel, said, “Since the inception of cardiac Department in Wadia Hospitals, in 2017, with state-of-the-art Cath lab and dedicated Cardiac Operation theatre and ICU, more than 1500 cases have been treated with 100% success rate, out of which 150 were only from Northern Maharashtra. By understanding the importance of patients receiving from other parts of Maharashtra, Wadia management has taken the noble step to come up with Outreach OPD centres. Heart specialists from Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children would conduct OPD’s on alternate Sundays, twice a month. This will make life easier for those children as most procedures and follow-ups can be done at their doorstep in Nashik itself.”

1.First Winner - Paani Fondation.jpg

Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis could not attend the program as he was busy handling the flood situation in the state. However, he interacted with the attendees through video conferencing. He said "It is a strange coincidence that on the one hand, we are facing drastic flood situation and on the other, we are celebrating our fight against draught-free Maharashtra. We are trying our level best to control the flood situation.”

Giving a futuristic view with regards to Paani Foundation’s work Aamir Khan announced another competition which would focus on issues like crop, soil & water management. He appealed villagers on these 3 issues to eradicate the evil of drought from Maharashtra.

Sharing his views on the journey of Paani Foundation Mr. Aamir Khan said, “Even though the drought situation is in control today, the journey of drought-free Maharashtra will have to continue. Underlining that it is important not to win or lose in this competition. He said, "All the participating villages in our view are the winners. We all have to keep in minds that we have not lost the famine yet. The famine may return if we don’t continue the work. We can only completely defeat the drought if we focus on soil, grass and crop planning along with the watershed management. "

Speaking on the occasion, Kiran Rao said, "In view of the flood situation created in the state and the country, we have decided to do this program simply.

Satyajit Bhatkal, Chief Executive Officer of Paani Foundation said, " This is the fourth year of the competition this year, but to date there has never been such a tough situation. There was a lot of doubt as to whether or not to contest because the rain had dropped last year and elections came during the competition period. Yet, this year 4726 villages have been trained and 4154 villages participated in the actual competition. These villages have shown their Irresistible willpower. Water cup is creating social capital in the villages. Let’s use this social capital to face future challenges." He added.

Popatrao Pawar, chairman of the competition's examining committee, underlined the need for farmers to change the crop system. He said, "It was difficult to determine the winners as the competition has been so tough this year compared to the last three years. We have to adopt the eighth method of irrigation, change the method of market-based crops, otherwise India will be destroyed in 10 years. He also appealed the young people to be a part of the Paani family instead of involving in DJs and statues. He appreciated Paani Foundation, saying that the concept of watershed management was truly passed on by the Paani Foundation.


Mr. Aamir Khan and Ms. Kiran Rao, Founders of Paani Foundation, and Mr. Satyajit Bhatkal, CEO of Paani Foundation appreciated the funders, partners, villagers and all the members of Paani Foundation for being the part of this wonderful journey for the last 4 years. Also, the funders appreciated the work done by the team to bring about a positive change in respective villages.
Satyamev Jayate Water Cup is a competition between different villages to see who can do the best work for watershed management and water conservation in the period of the competition, i.e. from 8th April to 22nd May 2019. Every revenue village in the selected talukas is eligible to participate provided they undergo Paani Foundation’s training in the science of watershed management.
In 2019, the competition witnessed the participation of more than 4700 villages from 76 talukas from 24 districts of Maharashtra.  Over 20,000 villagers were trained in watershed management by Paani Foundation. Over half a million people participated in the shramdaan during the Water Cup. The water storage capacity created by this year’s competition is approximately 26,000 crore litres

    Royal Enfield, the global leader in the mid-size motorcycle segment, has consistently worked towards building increased accessibility for consumers, into the motorcycling way of life. With close to 930 existing dealer touchpoints in India alone, more than 8800 service bays, and more than 900 authorised service workshops, Royal Enfield has the most widespread sales and service network among premium brands in the country.

To be operational from today, the new Royal Enfield Studio Stores will  have the same retail identity as existing dealerships across cities, and will have the entire portfolio of motorcycles, in addition to service and spares.  The Company takes pride in its long association with the armed forces and is proud to have all the new stores inaugurated simultaneously by retired army personnel. The company also announced the launch of six new colours of the iconic Royal Enfield Bullet. The Bullet will now be available starting at Rs. 1,12,000/- (ex-showroom) 

    Speaking about the launch of the new Studio Stores and the new Bullet motorcycles, Mr. Vinod K Dasari, CEO, Royal Enfield, said, “It has been our constant endeavour to build greater accessibility for discerning customers and widen our footprint in India. We have witnessed significant demand across smaller towns and cities which are showing tremendous potential for growth and are soon becoming a huge market for middle-weight motorcycle segment. Motorcycling aspirants in these towns are quickly catching on the trend of leisure motorcycling. With an intent to significantly expand our reach and build a robust network into these towns and cities, we are happy to announce the launch of 250 new Royal Enfield Studio Stores. We have definite plans to increase this further by the end of this fiscal.”

    To be located primarily in smaller towns and cities across India, the Royal Enfield Studio Stores is a unique, compact format that will house the entire range of Royal Enfield motorcycles, alongside service and spares and the entire suite of Royal Enfield motorcycle accessories and apparel. The format of the stores will be spread across 500-600 sq.ft. area and will be identical visually and operationally to existing Royal Enfield dealership. These compact stores are intended to provide significantly greater accessibility of sales and service to existing customers and to cater to increasing demand from potential customers in up-country markets.  

    The Royal Enfield Bullet is an iconic motorcycle that’s had an enduring journey over the last 87 years - since 1932. This has given Royal Enfield the privilege of being the world’s oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production, with the Bullet being the longest running motorcycle model in the world. The launch of the new Bullet motorcycles, adds another chapter to this resilient journey. 

    The new Bullet, in striking new livery, bold new colours and contemporary design themes provide varied options to prospective buyers. The Bullet 350, in addition to its existing black colour, will now be available in three new colours - the Bullet Silver, Sapphire Blue and the Onyx BlackBullet 350 ES will be launched in Jet Black, Regal Red, Royal Blue colour options in addition to the current Maroon and Silver variants. These new motorcycles will come an aesthetic blacked out theme. The new Bullet motorcycles will be open for bookings at Royal Enfield stores across India at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1,12,000 (ex-showroom)

    Launching along with the new Bullet range of motorcycles, is another significant step towards customer satisfaction. Royal Enfield announced the launch of a new initiative on improving Cost of Ownership. Across all its authorised service centers, the company will commence the use of a new set of processes and technology, coupled with a new mix of semi-synthetic oil, for servicing. These initiatives will now increase the service interval from being 3 months / 3000 kms to 6 months / 5000 kms. The oil change interval also increases to 12 months or 10,000 kms, as opposed to the earlier 6 months or 5000 kms. This will therefore, bring down the overall service interventions required in a year and will bring down the cost of service by an average of 40% over a period of 3 years, thereby significantly improving cost of ownership for the customer. This new service improvement initiative will be applicable to all current Unit Construction Engine engine motorcycles models under the unit construction engine platform - the Bullet, Classic and the Thunderbird.
