“Oreo is the No. 1 biscuit in the world by value and enjoys market leadership in many markets, including the U.S. and China,” said Anand Kripalu, president — South Asia & Indo-China, Kraft Foods, and managing director — Cadbury India. “Introducing Oreo marks the beginning of our journey in this growing category and we are readying ourselves to make Oreo a preferred choice with Indian consumers. The Indian biscuits market continues to show remarkable growth, a testament to rapidly developing consumer tastes that provides us the perfect opportunity to enter this category.”
