ITC Bingo! launches 3 Korean flavour variants

Kolkata: ITC Bingo!’s latest offering Bingo! 2X Hot and Spicy Korean-style chips are all set to delight consumers with its three sizzling formats – Bingo! Original Style, Bingo! Hashtags and Bingo! Potato chips.

Recognising the Indian consumers’ undeniable love for all things Korean, from K-drama to K-pop and now Korean cuisine, Bingo! is the first brand in India to launch Korean-flavoured savoury snacks.

To amplify the launch and tap into the K-wave, Bingo! has collaborated with popular South Korean singer Aoora, for a new song – Maeun Maeun, which means Spicy, Spicy in Korean. The music video has been conceptualised and developed by Tonic Worldwide.

The brand has also partnered with approximately 15 influencers across regions, including Korean influencers in India, Indian influencers in Korea and food vloggers, to spread awareness about the new launch.

Research shows that there is a growing interest among consumers to try Korean flavours and engage with Korean culture. According to the Mintel Report, this is more evident among GenZ consumers, with about 30 percent GenZ females showing interest in new Korean flavours.

Having identified a gap in the market for a Korean-inspired product in the snacking segment, Bingo! Korean-style delivers an authentic taste experience that perfectly blends the essence of fiery Korean-style flavours with Bingo!’s potato chips.

Suresh Chand, VP & Head of Marketing, Snacks, Noodles and Pasta, ITC Foods, said, “The Korean culture has significantly penetrated in India especially among the GenZ audience. We, too, noticed that our consumers are seeking Korean experiences in snacking. Catering to this demand, we have launched the all new first-of-its kind spicy, tangy Korean-Style Chips in the Indian market.”

Suresh Chand said, “Infused with Korean-inspired flavours tailored to the spice-loving palates of India, we are confident that this range will delight our consumers.”

The new range will be available across all markets in India in convenient and pocket-friendly packs.
