Britannia launches Biscafe, the perfect partner to your Coffee


Coffee is loved by millions across the world, but does coffee truly have a
perfect partner? Wondering why the country’s largest Bakery Foods Company, Britannia is talking
about coffee…read along.
Britannia solved the #CoffeeKaBetterHalf dilemma that was causing widespread paranoia and much
anticipation amongst netizens last week. The Foods Major did this by launching the all-new Britannia
Biscafe, a coffee flavoured cracker that elevates your coffee drinking experience.
Infused with the flavour of rich coffee, this super thin, light & crunchy biscuit offers coffee lovers the
perfect companion to their cuppa. Choose to have it as a stand-alone shot of crunchy coffee, that’s
fine too.

Britannia kicked off the campaign with a ‘leaked video’ of Karan Johar. It is no mystery that Karan
Johar aka KJo is one of the most quirky, fashionable directors that has a strong affinity for Coffee.
The video showed Karan losing his cool, as he was denied his favourite cup of coffee…why? Well,
because coffee had gone on strike! The video went viral and speculation ran wild about what the
possible reasons could be!
Karan goes crazy
The next video in the series, had Karan deeply empathising with Coffee’s trauma of being treated
like the third wheel and vowing to find Coffee its better half!
Karan’s self-shot video –
The 3 rd video had Karan Johar filtering through endless suggestions on the perfect accompaniment
for coffee, brainstorming on potential pairs, and optimum flavour profiles brought together by
numerous influencers and netizens on a quest to ease coffee’s pain of feeling incomplete.
Audition video –
When nothing rang a bell, Karan picks up the phone on Britannia’s Managing Director Varun Berry’s
and implores him to find the right partner to Coffee!

And that’s how Britannia Biscafe was launched. The Wafer-thin Cracker with the richness of coffee
was created by Britannia to be the new OG cracker for the current generation.
Commenting on the launch of Biscafe, Amit Doshi, Chief Marketing Officer, Britannia
Industries said, “Britannia has consistently worked to provide the most delicious and satiating
snacking alternatives to over a billion Indians. Keen listening in on social media food conversations
pointed to an opportunity area. Coffee didn’t have the perfect accompaniment, and that was the
inspiration for Biscafe. We developed Biscafe as the first ‘Made in India’ coffee cracker to serve as a
snack accompaniment to a hot cup of coffee, thereby elevating the coffee experience.”
Speaking on the launch of the digital campaign, Aayush Vyas, Vice-President, Integrated Solutions
at Schbang Digital Solutions said, “Coffee completes our daily lives – our morning breakfast, our
dates, our business meetings – but who completes Coffee? That’s where Britannia Biscafe comes in.
For this unique product – we had to weave an equally unique narrative that personified Coffee and its
When you think about Coffee there is only one person who comes to our mind – Karan Johar! And
that’s exactly how everything came to fit in so seamlessly, and we found our #CoffeeKaBetterHalf –
Talking about the new TVC, Sagar Kapoor, Chief Creative Officer, Lowe Lintas said, “This was an
opportunity to do something very different in the biscuit category since Biscafe is also a first-of-its-
kind in the category. To bring out the product attributes in an interesting way, we came up with the
idea of creating a holistic communication approach starting with using Karan Johar because of his
strong association with coffee and a visual device of dominos to add some freshness. For Britannia, a
brand that has dominated tea and biscuit time, this will definitely create a new consumption
occasion, with coffee!”
Starting at Rs 10, the all new BisCafe packs are already available across metro markets across all the
standard price points in various pack sizes.
