Dlecta Foods Pvt Ltd, a leading name in the Food and Beverage (F&B) industry specializing in dairy products has recently introduced a line of gourmet products in the retail markets.
There has been an increasing demand for gourmet food in the retail space with growing appetite of urban Indians towards luxury gourmet food. The size of the gourmet food market in India is estimated at Rs. 6,500 crore, growing at a CAGR of 20% year on year and is expected to grow manifolds over the next few years.
Expressing his views on the matter, says Deepak Jain, Founder and Managing Director, Dlecta Foods said: “The young urban population appreciates good food and loves to explore new food cultures. This has become an inclusive part of lifestyle for many. Italian food that traditionally revolves around cheese is very popular with Indians and so are pastries and cakes. Our aim is to give these discerning food lovers the choice of dishing out world cuisines at home too. The products we have introduced are ingredients that can go into the making of gourmet foods that will deliver authentic tastes to the recipes.”
Dlecta Foods is the maker of India’s first and only dairy creamers, branded Milké. The product is sugarless, made from 100% cow milk and is considered a tastier and healthier substitute for powdered milk.
“Most of our products are premium, but belonging to the popular category. The cheese products that we’ve introduced are made from pure cow milk. The mozzarella is as fine as its Italian counterpart. The ganache is a product that is gaining in popularity and is used to make top layers of chocolate cakes, while the whip toppings are used for dressing cakes. We are positive that consumers will appreciate our offerings,” concludes Jain.
