The goal will be to relaunch the digital communication of SIL and create awareness that the brand encompasses more products than just jams. The focus will also be on generating sales through digital communication via activities on various virtual platforms."

Since then, SIL has been trying to make its distribution more efficient. It will now look at taking things a step further on the digital medium and endeavour to generate sales on it.

Scandic Food India marketing manager Sanjeev Singh said, "Today, Sil is the No.2 brand in the Jams category and one of the leading players in processed food segment. There is a definite need for a planned and structured approach for engaging with our audience in the online space.

With its current reach to the urban masses, it gives us the opportunity to create unique engagement points across multiple platforms with some great creative ideas. This also means connecting with certain ideologies in mind of the consumer and not just mere social engagement. Also keeping in mind the brand objective of scaling up its growth & reach to a wider base of audience, we have proposed some interesting initiatives along with customised services and we are pretty excited to start work immediately."
