Global players are not a threat to us, due to our USP of giving Indianised food”

Nishant Arora, Head Food Division, Kohinoor Foods Ltd

Do you think the coming of foreign competitors is a threat for you?
I don’t think so because our USP is ‘Indianized’ menu and we provide convenience food which requires Indian expertise and can be provided only by Indian players.

Do we miss out big on positioning?
I can’t comment on other players, but in Kohinoor Foods, our focus or positioning has been very clear. We offer hygienic and convenient Indian food, which no other players offer. Positioning is very important in any industry and this industry is no exception.

You are promoting the Kohinoor Foods brand in USA. Any bottlenecks?
When it comes to attracting Indians in the US, we didn’t have to face any bottlenecks; but when it comes to attracting non-Indian consumers, you need to focus on many things – like the hygiene condition during the preparation of food and details in packaging.

The future of the convenience food industry would be...
There would be more and more brands emerging in the Indian convenience food market and a majority of these would be from the retail companies.
