Following a multi-agency pitch in 2019, Wunderman Thompson South Asia has won the creative mandate for Sugarlite. The agency will be providing strategic and creative services to shape the communication for the brand which will cut across geographies, demographics and mind-sets and deliver differentiated content with incisive insights.
Sugarlite, which was launched in January 2019 is a premium sugar brand from India’s emerging wellness and health company, Zydus Wellness. A first of its kind sugar, Sugarlite delivers 50% less calories than regular sugar for the same degree of sweetness. The agenda of Sugarlite is to provide a healthy sugar to Indian homemakers and health seekers.
Commenting on the decision to appoint Wunderman Thompson as their creative agency, Tarun Arora, Chief Executive Offer, Zydus Wellness, said, “We were seeking to partner with an agency that would not only be responsible for communication development but also walk alongside us with strategic inputs on the brand. Hence we decided to extend our partnership with Wunderman Thompson considering the good work that has been done on some of our other brands.”
