Yoga Bar, a direct-to-consumer (D2C) brand owned by ITC, announced its entry into the baby food segment with a new brand 'Yoga Baby'.
Under the Yoga Baby brand, the company has introduced porridge mixes in five variants that combine whole grains like millet, oats and ragi. It is inspired by traditional recipes handed down from mothers and grandmothers.
Suhasini Sampath, a mother and co-founder and CEO of Yoga Bar, created Yoga Baby for her little daughter. Now, it is being launched for a wider audience, according to a company statement.
"As a mother to my little girl, I understand and appreciate the thought and careful planning that goes into each meal. Unfortunately, this often takes away from precious moments with the little one. Yoga Baby will ensure that parents devote less time to meal planning and invest more time in creating beautiful memories with their children," she said.
Earlier this year, ITC announced the acquisition of Sproutlife Foods Pvt Ltd (SFPL), which owned the Yoga Bar brand.
ITC has signed a binding term sheet to acquire 100% shares of SFPL over a period of three to four years.
