"At Rasna we are constantly looking at new innovations and strategies. Today, the per capita consumption of Rasna is 15 glasses and our vision is to increase the per capita consumption to 100 glasses by 2005 and to reach out to one billion Indians every year."

- Piruz Khambatta, Chairman and Managing Director, Rasna Ltd., in March 2002.

No More 'I Love You Rasna'

Pioma Industries Ltd. (Pioma) is perhaps not a familiar name for the average Indian consumer. However, Pioma's brand 'Rasna' is very well known.

In fact, the name Rasna is almost a generic name for soft drink concentrates (SDC), a segment that had been created and nurtured by the company in the Indian beverages market.

Rasna's extremely popular advertisements with the tagline, 'I love you Rasna,' had become an integral part of the Indian advertising folklore. In March 2002, Pioma announced a radical overhauling of its strategies for the Rasna brand.

This development was rather unexpected, as the brand had been lying dormant since long. Company sources revealed that these developments were in line with a restructuring program that had been conceptualized in mid-2001.

Keeping in line with this plan, Pioma launched two new brands, Rasna Utsav (Rasna Festive) and Rasna Rozana (Rasna Daily) in March 2002.

The launch was accompanied by a multi-media advertisement campaign, for which the company allocated Rs 160 million.

The television campaign that ran across all major national and regional channels featured a 'song' exclusively composed for the new launches.

A notable feature of this commercial was the fact that it was voiced by one of the country's most well known singers, Asha Bhonsle, who had never sung for any commercial before.
