Parle Agro, the largest Indian beverage manufacturer, has launched its new #FeelTheFizz marketing campaign for its brand Appy Fizz with a budget of Rs 100 crore. This will be the first campaign for the brand, featuring its new brand ambassador Salman Khan.

The new campaign, which builds on the need for the brand consumers to own their fizz, is targeted towards the youth across India. It is a part of the overall strategy of the company, which is targeting a turnover of Rs 5,000 crore by the end of 2018, as well as building the Fruit plus Fizz category to Rs 4,000 crore over the coming years.

Speaking about the new campaign, Nadia Chauhan, joint managing director and chief marketing officer, Parle Agro, said, “With the new #FeelTheFizz campaign, the target is to further increase the double-digit growth Appy Fizz has been consistently seeing, over the past few years, while strengthening its leadership in the Fruit plus Fizz category.”

“Salman Khan, as the face of the brand, plays a critical role in achieving the aggressive vision we have set out for the brand and the category it has created. Driving scale in distribution, recall and preference are the key brand objectives for the brand in 2018,” she added.

Sagmeister and Walsh continues to be the creative agency on board, while the TVC is produced by 1st Ave Machine, New York, and directed by Morgan Harary.
