The introduction of the 10-liter multi-use jar for Freedom Refined Sunflower Oil is a strategic response to evolving consumer preferences and the growing inclination towards environmentally friendly, reusable products. This innovative jar is designed to enhance convenience for families and addresses the need for practical and sustainable solutions. It features a contemporary design, complete with a tamper-proof lid and easy-pour technology, ensuring ease of use.

Weikfield Foods Pvt Limited, a household name recognized for its popular products such as Custard Powder, Corn Flour, Baking Powder, and Pasta, proudly unveils the Weikfield Iron Fortified Pasta. This nutritionally enriched pasta boasts fortification with essential nutrients like Iron, Vitamin B12, and Folic Acid, all while preserving its delectable taste.
Weikfield’s latest offering is a welcome relief for parents, especially mothers, on the quest for iron-rich food choices for their children without compromising the delectable flavor they crave. The introduction of this innovative product marks a significant milestone in the Indian culinary landscape, as it is one of the country’s first F+certified pastas endorsed by FSSAI, successfully tackling the age-old challenge of harmonizing nutrition with taste.
For over six decades, Weikfield has been a trusted and beloved brand, captivating the palates of millions in India and beyond. The company, as a testament to its commitment to consumer trust, has taken an unprecedented step by featuring its CEO, D.S. Sachdeva, in a lie detector test as part of its latest campaign. This strategic move underscores the nutritional claims of Weikfield Fortified Pasta, emphasizing its substantial protein, fiber, and iron content, as well as its notable absence of refined flour (Maida).
Sachdeva expressed, “Weikfield has always endeavored to help mothers strike the right balance between taste and nutrition. In India, pasta is often misconceived as junk food. Most are unaware that pastas like Weikfield Pasta, primarily composed of wheat and frequently served with vegetables and white pasta sauce (infused with cheese and milk), offer a wealth of nutrients. It effectively combines the goodness of Roti (Indian bread), Sabji (vegetables), and Doodh (milk). As pioneers in the industry, we are committed to rectifying this misconception through a distinctive product and innovative communication. With our iron-fortified pasta range, we aim to provide Indian consumers with the authentic taste of Italian pasta coupled with the goodness of micronutrients.”
“We have taken the extra step to ensure that we do not compromise on the quality of our product merely to align with market pricing. This launch is not just an addition to our product line; it’s a revolution in how pasta is perceived – as a wholesome meal choice for children. Typically, consumers are skeptical of marketing claims. What better way to dispel that skepticism than to have my marketing team come up with the idea of me taking a lie detector test on camera? I didn’t hesitate,” he added.
Dr. Indu Khosla emphasized, “Iron is the mineral crucial for the health and development of babies and children. Iron deficiency can impact the academic performance of older children. Inadequate iron levels can impair children’s concentration, leaving them fatigued and weak. Considering that Weikfield pasta contains iron content equivalent to consuming two bowls of spinach, it emerges as a commendable choice.“
The Weikfield Iron Fortified Pasta will be available in three distinct shapes: Penne, Elbow, and Fusilli. It will be readily accessible in leading retail stores, supermarkets, and also through prominent e-commerce platforms across major metropolises in India.

Pakka Limited, formerly known as Yash Pakka Limited, a leading manufacturer of compostable packaging solutions, has introduced India’s inaugural compostable flexible packaging in collaboration with Brawny Bear, a nutrition company renowned for creating healthy food products using the natural sweetness of dates. This marks a significant advancement in India’s packaging industry, which boasts a valuation exceeding $70 billion.
The flexible packaging sector commands a substantial portion of India’s packaging landscape, accounting for over 60 percent of the total. It is an omnipresent part of our daily lives, encompassing a wide range of products from shampoo sachets to biscuit packets. This adaptable packaging format has become an indispensable facet of modern living due to its convenience, versatility, and cost-effectiveness. However, the convenience of conventional flexible packaging has raised concerns about its environmental impact, primarily because it is predominantly crafted from non-biodegradable plastics. The multi-layered composition and low thickness of such packaging make recycling a near-impossible feat. Pakka Limited’s venture into flexible packaging is a logical progression for a company that has dedicated four decades to producing compostable pulp, paper packaging solutions, and molded tableware. With ambitious plans to scale up production of these eco-friendly packaging solutions in the next three years, the company’s global manufacturing facilities in Ayodhya, India, and Guatemala, America, are poised to become innovation and production hubs.
The launch of India’s inaugural compostable flexible packaging coincides with the burgeoning global demand for eco-friendly packaging solutions. According to a report by Mordor Intelligence, the Indian packaging market is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.6 percent from 2023 to 2028. While the global average per capita consumption of flexible packaging stands at 28 kg, India currently registers at 11 kg per capita, signaling a vast untapped market with immense growth potential.
The collaboration with Brawny Bear, India’s pioneering date-based food manufacturer, perfectly embodies Pakka’s commitment to compostability. Brawny Bear’s product range includes chocolates, chikki, nut butter, milkshake/energy powders, and natural sweeteners, all based on dates.
Pakka’s groundbreaking compostable flexible packaging boasts a range of essential features that exemplify its mission to contribute to a cleaner planet. This packaging is food-grade compliant, heat-sealable to attain certified compostable status, offers high barrier properties to prevent exposure, ensures premium quality, is lightweight, and remains cost-effective.
Shivaam Tibrewal (Founder), Brawny Bear said, “Brawny Bear’s unwavering mission is to deliver health-conscious consumers with an array of Healthy No Added Sugar Foods that redefine the boundaries of quality and flavor. Simultaneously, we are dedicated to fostering a sustainable business ecosystem that echoes our core values. This vision finds its perfect ally in an exciting new partnership with Pakka that embodies Brawny Bear’s objectives.

Founded by Prithvi Bhagat, a fourth-generation entrepreneur hailing from the prestigious Gulabdas Group, Strch seeks to transform the Indian approach to an active lifestyle, harnessing the superior qualities of nylon to empower consumers to unlock their full potential. Unlike many other industry players, Strch activewear is designed to cater equally to both men and women, offering a diverse selection of chic joggers, polo shirts, crop tops, sports bras, shorts, skorts, and more.
says Prithvi Bhagat, Founder and CEO of Strch said, “As a first-time entrepreneur, I am elated to introduce Strch and share our vision for elevating activewear and an active lifestyle in India. India has long been recognized as a hub for fashion-conscious consumers, yet premium activewear has often been an exception. In a nation with a burgeoning appetite for fitness and fashion, Strch was born out of the necessity for high-quality, homegrown activewear. With Strch, we aspire to create a journey that is authentic, fashionably relevant, and, most importantly, comfortable.“
While the Indian market is teeming with various homegrown activewear brands, the prevalence of polyester has led to a dearth of premium feel and comfort. At Strch, the exclusive utilization of superior nylon material, in line with international activewear standards, guarantees a luxurious fit and an unparalleled level of comfort and quality.
However, what truly sets Strch apart is its unwavering commitment to delivering activewear tailored for the Indian body type. Strch’s clothing offers a comfortable fit in the stomach area and incorporates spandex for added stretch, accommodating slight changes in your body while ensuring your attire doesn’t uncomfortably cling. Whether you’re hitting the gym, going for a leisurely walk, or practicing yoga, Strch enables your body to reach its full potential.

Fabelle Exquisite Chocolates, the distinguished luxury chocolate brand under the banner of ITC Ltd has earned recognition for its commitment to crafting extraordinary chocolate experiences for its discerning customers. In recent years, Fabelle has introduced several groundbreaking innovations, such as the Fabelle Trinity – Truffles Extraordinaire, which stands as the world’s most expensive chocolate, and the Fabelle Finesse, celebrated as the world’s finest chocolate.

In an exclusive event held at the ITC Sheraton, New Delhi, Fabelle, in a strategic partnership with Chef Andy Allen, a renowned Australian food critic and TV presenter, unveiled this delectable fusion of global flavors and cultures.
This signature luxury chocolate offering has been meticulously handcrafted with the finest ingredients and cocoa.

ITC Fabelle Master Chocolatiers, known for their unwavering dedication to excellence, engaged in multiple iterations and collaborative sessions with Chef Andy Allen to perfect each truffle.

Max Fashion, a prominent fashion retail brand, has kindled enthusiasm this festive season with its “Unbelievable” campaign. The newly released film adeptly captures the essence of Max Fashion’s commitment to maximum style at minimum prices, highlighting the latest trends and styles and emphasizing its dedication to affordable fashion. Today, the campaign debuts with two ingenious and whimsical film segments, reaffirming its position as a value-driven fashion brand.
Pallavi Pandey, the Head of Marketing and spokesperson for Max Fashion India said, “At Max, our commitment to celebrating individuality and style knows no boundaries. Our latest film exemplifies this ethos—where exquisite fashion meets astounding affordability. This forms the bedrock of our beliefs, and the two films effectively encapsulate this concept through captivating and engaging content. The ‘Max Style Min Price’ philosophy was introduced earlier this year, and we persist in conveying this message through entertaining and visually captivating stories. We firmly believe that fashion is a potent tool for self-expression, and we are thrilled to breathe life into this message, reminding our core target audience, ‘everyone in the family,’ to indulge in festive shopping and celebrate with Max.“
The creative endeavor explores innovative concepts to create enchantment. The first film, titled “Angel Boss,” begins with the entrance of the stunning Mia into her office, elegantly dressed in a Max Fashion outfit, alongside her impeccably dressed colleague. Their appearance disrupts a conversation among their colleagues, leaving one of them in utter disbelief, questioning whether Mia acquired her attire through cashback offers. In a whimsical twist, the colleagues contemplate how wonderful it would be if their boss were an angel as generous as those cashbacks. Infused with subtle humor, this improbable idea springs to life as the boss miraculously appears with a halo and angelic wings, confirming, “Yes.”
Expanding upon this concept, the second film, “Alien Mom,” features Joey, a stylish teenager, sporting the latest trendy jacket. His friend, Trisha, jestingly questions if he purchased the jacket solely with his pocket money. With a playful shrug, Trisha humorously remarks that next Joey might say his mother is an alien. The comic twist unfolds as Joey’s mother, aptly dubbed the “alien mom,” makes her entrance, greeting him with a cheerful “Hello, beta!”
The films will be broadcast on Hotstar during the ICC World Cup 2023 series, as well as on leading regional TV channels and YouTube simultaneously, reaching audiences in Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru, Delhi NCR, and Mumbai. Through these films, Max Fashion aims to convey its core message of offering stunning styles at unbelievably affordable prices.
With its retail presence continually expanding, Max Fashion is poised to venture into new markets. The brand offers a comprehensive range of stylish apparel, footwear, and accessories for men, women, and children. Committed to inclusivity, Max Fashion ensures that remarkable fashion is accessible to individuals from all walks of life, nurturing a culture of confidence and self-expression.

With the United Nations designating 2023 as the International Year of Millets, the Mysuru-based company eagerly aims to make the nutritional benefits of these superfoods easily accessible to a broader Indian audience.
Enriched with a balanced blend of 12 cereals, pulses, and millets, Sunpure Multigrain Atta contains the highest proportion of multigrain content (15 percent) when compared to other products in its category.

Sunpure is committed to rectifying this by reintroducing these wholesome, traditional Indian foods into our daily lives. Sunpure Multigrain Atta boasts the highest millet composition compared to other multigrain attas in the market. Now, you can prepare perfect chapatis, pooris, parathas, naans, and kulchas at home, without compromising on taste or health. Clinical studies have confirmed the myriad health benefits of millets, while environmentalists recognize their eco-friendly attributes. Millets benefit both people and the planet.“

Multigrain attas also contribute to weight management, being an excellent source of dietary fiber. They additionally bolster the immune system and promote digestive health, offering a wide array of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to one’s diet. In addition to Sunpure Multigrain Atta, the company already offers a well-received product in this category – Sunpure Swaad Sharbati Atta, produced using advanced Swiss technology. As an ISO 22000:2018 certified company, Sunpure maintains rigorous quality control measures to ensure that all its products meet the highest standards of hygiene and safety.

In the fiscal year 2022-23, the company achieved a 15 percent growth rate while extending its reach across Karnataka, Maharashtra, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Goa, and Tamil Nadu.
Sunpure Multigrain Atta, available in 1kg packs priced at Rs 75, can be purchased online and at retail stores across Karnataka, Maharashtra, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Goa, and Tamil Nadu.

Wacoal India, the Japanese premium lingerie brand, recently reaffirmed its dedication to breast cancer awareness through the #WacoalKnowsBreast initiative, in collaboration with the Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA), a non-profit organization committed to raising cancer awareness and offering comprehensive support to patients through its distinctive ‘Total Management of Cancer’ philosophy.

This accomplishment positions the brand as the sole homegrown innerwear brand to establish such an extensive offline retail presence within a mere 12 months. As the leading D2C innerwear-first brand to soar past the INR 100 crore revenue mark, DaMENSCH is strategically focusing on the inauguration of exclusive retail outlets in prominent cities, including Delhi-NCR, Pune, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru.
“Even though DaMENSCH has always banked on a multi-channel approach, offline continues to be a focus channel for us.

With a core brand ethos centered on necessity-based innovation, the brand symbolizes the three Cs – Comfort, Contemporary, and Consciousness.

Internet sensation Emma Chamberlain, has unveiled her latest venture, a collaborative effort with Levi’s. Emma, who traces her roots to the scenic landscapes of Northern California, has partnered with Levi’s, a brand that has called this region home since its inception in 1853, to craft a collection inspired by the natural wonders of their shared hometown. The result is a versatile and nostalgic Levi’s x Emma Chamberlain collection, featuring six effortless pieces paying homage to nature, which draws creative inspiration from Emma’s favorite thrift store discoveries.
This limited-edition collection takes cues from Emma’s laid-back Northern California upbringing and incorporates earthy hues, cozy-core styling, and a distinctive woodsy print inspired by the rings of a redwood tree. The collection includes a vintage-inspired, lined Boxy Jacket with a classic point collar and a slightly cropped fit; a color-blocked, relaxed fit Mockneck Sweater with bell sleeves and custom buttons evoking a woodsy vibe; and a sleeveless Fitted Knit Top featuring a pine tree design. For bottoms, the collection offers an overdyed, dusty purple-blue Midi Skirt with a frayed waistband and hem; red-orange Trousers with a relaxed fit and slightly tapered leg; and, of course, 501 Originals in a brown overdye with a lasered tree ring design.
Emma Chamberlain shared her thoughts on the collaboration, saying, “The Levi’s team gave me so much flexibility and basically took my exact ideas and made them real. It was such a magical experience. I would say this collection is nostalgic, outdoor-inspired, and timeless. I was really inspired by the fact that the brand and I are both from the San Francisco area, and I wanted to lean into what makes Northern California so special. All the pieces also sort of remind me of things that I would freak out over if I saw them at the thrift store. I wanted them to have classic silhouettes that you could wear for the next ten years and never get sick of.”
In addition to her internet fame, Emma is a podcaster and the creator behind Chamberlain Coffee. She not only collaborated with the Levi’s design team to bring this collection to life but also served as the Creative Director for the campaign. The campaign was shot against the backdrop of Northern California’s diverse natural beauty, from the lush redwood forests to the misty bluffs overlooking the Pacific, enhancing the allure of this thoughtfully co-designed collection.
Karyn Hillman, Chief Product Officer at Levi Strauss & Co, shared her thoughts on the creative process, saying, “The creative process was super organic and exciting with Emma — she had a very strong and genuine point of view for her collection. While paying homage to the picturesque nature of our shared home in Northern California, these pieces embody coziness and effortlessness with a lot of authentic character. It’s been a joy working alongside Emma and to see this beautiful collection and campaign come to life.”
The Levi’s x Emma Chamberlain collaboration is now available for purchase at the DLF Mall of India store and on Levi.in, allowing fashion enthusiasts to embrace the charm of Northern California-inspired fashion.
