Britannia introduced Good Day by positioning it just above its ‘glucose’ offering. Where on one hand, glucose biscuits offered just wheat, milk and sugar, Good Day attracted consumers with butter and dry fruits. It also ensured that its richness and indulgence remain preserved and ‘accessible’ to the masses.
In the year 2012, Good Day celebrated its 25 years of existence in the Indian market and became the largest and fastest growing brand for Britannia. Good Day is estimated to occupy a two-third market share in the indulgence segment valued at ı33 billion.
It has been more than two decades since it was first produced but the brand still continues to enjoy a fan following of consumers across all ages. The brand is synonymous with everyday indulgence which brings happiness into people’s lives.
Good Day as a brand has evolved itself with the everchanging taste and needs of the country. Starting from the butter variant, that was considered indulgence 25 years ago, and moving to the next level with dry fruits (cashew and pista) and now the chocolate variant, Good Day has always defined ‘indulgence’ in its own way. Through its various campaigns and tagline ‘Iska toh ho gaya re Good Day’, the leading cookie brand has spearheaded the message of abundance, goodness, indulgence and unrestrained joy. Moreover, with its lowprice and high quality, the brand has always enjoyed an advantage over its competitors.
The rise of dietary awareness has seen consumers seeking foods that complement their lifestyles while offering convenience, variety and economy, along with health and nutrition.
Britannia saw the writing on the wall. Its Eat Healthy, Think Better re-position directly addressed this new trend by promising the new generation a healthy and nutritious alternative that was also delightful and tasty.
Thus, the new logo was born, encapsulating the core essence of Britannia – healthy, nutritious, optimistic – and combining it with a delightful product range to offer variety and choice to consumers. Britannia bagged two National Quality Excellence Awards for 2013- one for Best End-to-End Customer Solution (Supply Chain), and the second, for Planning, Processes and Systems in 2013.
