DY Works gives Amul Kool Lassi a Makeover

MUMBAI: Amul, India’s apex organization for dairy products has roped in renowned brand strategy and brand design firm DY Works to reinvent the look and packaging of Amul Kool Lassi to attract the young Indian demographic.

Being a brand that gives significant emphasis to their image and marketing, it was felt that the tetrapack that Amul Kool Lassi has been sporting since its launch needed to be revamped to a contemporary pet bottle.

Speaking about the project, Alpana Parida, President of DY Works remarked, “The brief was very interesting, and based on our preliminary research we realized that most of the companies in the peer group, whether it was colas or mineral water, had already moved to pet bottles, thus the need was to design packaging that was not only up to date with current trends but one that capitalized on gaining popularity as a healthy and natural beverage.”

An extensive cross-category study of beverages and customer preferences revealed that the biggest strategic challenge was to re-establish the relevance of lassi in a modern context where alternative beverages like colas and juices dominate the consideration set. Hence, the design objective was to put lassi in the modern, contemporary space with the product USPs of health coming in as supporting factors. Accordingly DY Works chose the route of cashing in on the idea of ‘cool’ manifested through a youthful and vibrant splash of colors. The team at DY Works felt that is was important to use the white background with a balance of colors but at the same time not come across as cluttered. The new packaging has helped appeal to a younger audience by emphasizing much more on style. It has revitalized the brand corresponding to a dramatic uptake in sales.

Remarking on the effective packaging and design instituted by DY Works, Mr. R.S. Sodhi, Managing Director, – GCMMF Ltd. commented, “The strategy to rebrand Amul Kool Lassee to Amul Lassi and redesigning the look to attract youth along with the message of health has really paid well in the market. There is a rising demand of lassi in new pack design which has helped us increase penetration of lassi by 50% in the market.”
