Amit Nair, business head, Living Foodz, adds, "Living Foodz is targetted at people across urban households, who are well travelled and well connected. The audiences that we are looking at are much more evolved; hence the need here was more than just managing and engaging with them on various digital platforms. We are looking to create a strong road map that helps us engage with our audiences across multiple mediums. We are sure that Social Kinnect will help us get there."

Rohan Mehta, CEO, Social Kinnect, says, on the win, "Living Foodz is a challenging brand to work with as we are trying to preserve the consumer sentiment from the Zee Khana Khazana transition and increase the breadth of the TG under the 'Living' banner. We hope to execute innovative strategies across established and developing social media platforms, convey the new brand promise and vibrancy, and build a much larger digital audience. Extensive use of videos, online to on-air integration and live updates are a few of the tactics we plan to use."
