ITC launches four variants of Sunfeast Yippee noodles


ITC Ltd-owned instant noodle brand Sunfeast Yippee has launched a new ‘My’ range with four variants—My Crazy Chow, My Madly Manchurian, My Mystery Masala and My Truly Chicken—targeted at young consumers.

The range will be available exclusively on the online grocery platform BigBasket for a week, following which it will be distributed to all modern format and general trade stores across the country.

Each pack is of 60gm and priced at  15 (vegetarian) and  18 (non-vegetarian).

“With the launch of the new variants under the ‘My’ range, we intend to widen the brand’s target audience. Yippee ‘My’ range has been crafted keeping in mind the taste preference of young adults and we are confident that it will garner appreciation from our target audience,” said Hemant Malik, divisional chief executive, foods division, ITC Ltd.
