09/15/2021 | 10:52pm EDT

Tata Consumer Products (TCP) the consumer products company uniting the principal food and beverage interests of the Tata Group under one umbrella, will be signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Institute of Millet Research (IIMR), to unlock the full potential of millets as a healthier and more sustainable alternative to traditional grains. TCP is the parent company of the Tata Soulfull brand, which has a portfolio of millet based products for kids and adults. The MoU will be signed by Dr Vilas A Tonapi, Director ICAR - Indian Institute of Millets Research and Vikas Gupta ,Global Head, R&D - Tata Consumer Products at the 'Nutri-Cereals Multi-stakeholders Mega Convention 3.0' Hyderabad, organized by Nutrihub, ICAR- IIMR. The event aims to highlight the UN's recent announcement of 2023 as the International Year of Millets (IYOM).

Tata Consumer Products has identified pantry and the mini meals segments as some of the key areas of focus in its growth strategy. Currently, it has the Tata Sampann brand in the pantry segment with a wide range of pulses and spices, and Tata Soulfull in the breakfast cereals, mini meals and snacking segment offering a range of millet based products for the modern Indian consumer. At the convention, Tata Consumer Products will also launch a new, improved version of Tata Soulfull No Maida Choco which comes with the added benefit of seven super grains in a delicious chocolate flavour. With the complete elimination of maida, preservatives and artificial ingredients, this healthy option offers parents and children the right balance of health, taste, and convenience since it is made of nutrient-rich millets, rich in fibre and protein.

The MoU will help combine the R&D expertise of the two entities and help TCP to strengthen the product portfolio in the area of millets, develop more value added formats for consumers and make millets available to many more consumers across India.

The MoU will cover the following key areas of collaboration between TCP and IIMR:
