With an aim to aid and strengthen the country’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, Marico Limited is expanding its play in the health and hygiene segment. Addressing an industry gap and with innovation at the core, this introduction offers a unique mix of ingredients that remove all germs, bacteria, chemicals, waxes and soil present on the surface of fruits and vegetables without leaving any residue, aftertaste or smell.
While hand, body, home and kitchen hygiene is in practice and consumption habits are also evolving in tandem with the current situation, ensuring complete sanitation of their fresh produce is still limited to only rinsing them with water. To bridge this gap with an innovative solution, Marico Limited has launched a first-of-its-kind fruit and vegetable cleaner.
Veggie Clean will be available across modern and ecommerce channels in two SKUs — 200 ml and 400 ml for Rs 149 and Rs 289, respectively. The solution does not contain any harmful preservative, is soap-free, chlorine-free and alcohol-free. It can be used to clean all kinds of vegetables and fruits except mushrooms. Veggie Clean is made from ingredients that are derived from natural sources. Simple to use, one is only required to soak and hand rub the fresh produce in a solution made of one capful of Veggie Clean and 2 litres of water followed by rinsing the soaked produce in running water 2-3 times for about 30 seconds.
Koshy George, Chief Marketing Officer, Marico Limited, said, “We at Marico believe in innovation that makes a real difference and as a responsible organisation, we continue to develop disruptive solutions that help address emerging consumer needs. We are witnessing a shift in consumer habit and consumption patterns are increasingly being centred on personal and domestic hygiene. Keeping this in mind, we launched Veggie Clean made with 100% safe ingredients, an industry-first innovation that will help consumers sanitise fruits and vegetables by removing impurities that may be present on the surface. With this launch, we hope to fill an existing gap in the hygiene segment.”
