Speaking on the launch of the first ever Esports event by Britannia, Amit Doshi, CMO, Britannia Industries Ltd said, “As a brand, Britannia Bourbon has always believed in aggregating fun between friends. We understand the youngsters these days love football, digital experiences and of course, to travel with their BFFs. All we did was offer all these fun experiences via 1 fun campaign. As the country with the largest youth population in the world, India is embracing the new generation’s interests in digital sports and entertainment (statista*).  Although, the popularity of gaming consoles continues to grow amongst Indian consumers, a majority of the gaming population chooses to play on their mobile devices. We made the most of this insight and wanted to gratify our consumers with one-of-a-kind gaming experience while igniting fun moments with their BFFs that will be etched in their memories forever.”
