Center fresh mints strengthens brand portfolio with the launch of ‘Fruity Mints’


Center Fresh 3 layer Mint, a unique offering with which Center Fresh forayed into the mint candy segment, continued its success in 2019. The brand has now announced an introduction of a new flavour, Center Fresh Fruity Mints, a novel combination of fruit and mint flavours. This extension is aimed at increasing penetration by bringing in new consumers into the consumption fold.

This offering would be an additional option for the consumer, apart from the existing peppermint flavour of the brand.  

In addition, Center Fresh Mints is also collaborating with PayTM, one of India’s leading digital cash wallets, integrating an assured instant cash back offer to induce trials for the new flavour. This offer will also be available on the peppermint variant. Commenting on the Fruity Mints launch, Rohit Kapoor, director (marketing), Perfetti Van Melle India, said, “Mints as a category has been gaining traction in India owing to the growing consciousness of having fresh breath during key occasions to impress.”

“This category is of strategic business importance for us and the launch of Center Fresh Fruity Mints is expected to add incremental business to the brand. The consumption format of the product will continue to answer the need for instant fresh breath,” he added.

Kapoor stated, “I am also excited to share that the launch is being supported by a  360-degree support campaign on television and digital, along with consumer sampling, announcing the Fruity Mint flavour and showcasing the association with PayTM staying true to the existing Center Fresh brand codes.”  The announcer communication for this instant cash back offer with PayTM builds on the insight that consciousness for fresh breath is heightened when you accidentally bump into someone interesting.

The role of Center Fresh mints with benefit of Instant fresh breath is clearly established in such occasions, apart from effectively bringing out the 100 per cent cash back offer with the digital wallet.
