The campaign done in partnership with Wavemaker India began with an on-ground activation in collaboration with delivery services company Dunzo. To commence the celebration of World Idli Day and intimate consumers of this exciting new cookbook, MTR Foods has started a campaign to reach over 85,000 households with a special MTR Idli hamper and a unique QR code linking them to the MTR Wow Idli Cookbook.

Talking about the campaign, Sunay Bhasin, Chief Marketing Officer, MTR Foods, said, “Idli has always been a popular breakfast dish in India and over the years has gained a much bigger share of the plate. Consumers from all over the country enjoy this simple yet versatile dish not only for breakfast but across meals.”
