Chennai, December 2017: Amway Queen, the premium cookware range from the country’s leading direct selling FMCG company, has crossed sales of INR 100 crores within a record time of just 10 months for Amway. Launched in January 2017, the success of Amway Queen exemplifies the company’s strategy to cater to the growing demand from the health-conscious consumers who are looking for a cookware range which allows tasty and nutritious cooking.
Commenting on the milestone, Mr. Sundip Shah, Chief Marketing Officer, Amway India, said, “Over the last few years, widening of the product basket has been one of the key strategic areas for Amway India to spur growth in the country, besides infrastructure upgradation, increased consumer access strategy, experiential marketing & brand awareness. The cookware range was specially created to cater to the niche segment of premium cookware in India which is seeing traction with young India’s preference towards wellness quotient of products and rapidly growing awareness about the nutritional requirements. The cookware range was developed considering the Indian food habits, culinary palate and cooking practices.
We are excited and proud to have hit the 100-crores milestone within 10 months of the launch. It gives us confidence that we are headed in the right direction. Based on the consumer feedback, we will be introducing new utensils in the coming year that reflect the unique cooking experience with Amway Queen. Our target is to achieve a leadership position within the premium cookware segment in the next one year.”
Amway Queen enables cooking with much less water and almost zero oil as compared to a conventional cookware range. Its VITALOK™ technology helps lock-in the moisture which further helps to preserve the taste and nutrition of the food. Furthermore, the OPTITEMPTM technology helps in improving heat distribution on every kind of cook-top. Its multi-layer structure and OPTITEMPTM base makes almost Zero Oil cooking possible. The food cooks evenly and quickly over medium to slow temperature, saving time and energy. Amway Queen is backed by a 30-year warranty and is available across the country.
“Today’s consumers equate brands with experiences. We have leveraged our direct selling model to have meaningful conversations with our consumers on the product benefits by using live cooking demonstrations as the main tool to bring the healthy cooking benefits to life as well as witness the benefits of the cookware. We have conducted more than 1000 live demonstrations to give a live experience of the product to the consumers which yielded good results for Amway Queen. We will continue to engage with consumers for live demonstrations across markets”, added Ajay Khanna, Category Head, Wellness, Amway India.
