With the launch of DESIRED, ORRA has further expanded its contemporary jewellery line for the growing base of young women consumers.
ORRA has witnessed a committed consumer base during the lockdown and forecasts a positive topline growth in 2021 with a focus on the rising young consumer segment. The DESIRED collection is designed to appeal to the fashion-conscious, modern women who think of jewellery as a fashion statement with an extension of their personality. The edgy and versatile jewellery collection is crafted in Rose gold & diamonds with over 100 styles available. The collection is set in 14 karat gold with the introduction of earrings and rings, being the first for ORRA in this product category.
Speaking about introducing DESIRED and a brand ambassador, Dipu Mehta, Managing Director, ORRA, said, “Being a pioneer in design leadership and product innovation, it is only natural for us to further expand our contemporary jewellery category. We are speaking to a growing base of millennial consumers, who bring their personality to everything they do including their wardrobe. All these facets and more come through in our new collection DESIRED. The significant launch of DESIRED is steered by the appointment of our brand ambassador Disha Patani. ORRA is delighted to collaborate with Disha Patani as the face of ORRA. She is a natural fit to this collection as she represents the quintessential woman of today, distinctive style, progressive and with the courage of her conviction.”
Elated about her association with ORRA, Disha Patani stated, “I am excited to be a part of ORRA Fine Jewellery. It is so exciting to represent a brand whose persona is so close to your own. The DESIRED collection is a perfect representation of my personal style with designs that are unique and trendy. I feel ORRA understands the sensibilities of today’s young woman and our need to be comfortable in our own skin. That makes our association so much more meaningful and I am extremely delighted about our partnership.”
Focusing on the new consumer category, Cecil de Santa Maria, COO, ORRA, added, “Increasingly, young women are buying for themselves and are becoming more evolved in their purchases as their appreciation for diamonds remains strong. With jewellery themed around the latest trends, such as layering of jewellery and bold designs, we at ORRA have been able to cater to an ever-increasing younger consumer segment. ORRA’s Desired collection is yet another step in the direction of product novelty to capture this growing segment who is discerning and progressive in their outlook and purchase decisions. Disha Patani is the perfect ambassador for the next generation of ORRA jewellery that enables the new breed of self-assured young women to take on the journey of confidence and expression and be their best version.”
The concept of the DESIRED collection focuses on layering and stacking jewellery pieces to add the right amount of glamour to one’s evening look. The new designs in necklaces, lariats, pendants, rings and earrings is priced between Rs 30,000 and under Rs 100,000; and will be available across ORRA’s 44 retail stores in India and online.
In a strategic move reinforcing its commitment to Madhya Pradesh's economic landscape, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages (HCCB), a prominent FMCG player in India, has disclosed a Rs 350 crore investment in the state. This announcement, made during a meeting between the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Dr. Mohan Yadav, and a senior HCCB delegation, propels the company's cumulative investment in the state to over Rs 660 crore.
The capital injection will fuel the establishment of two cutting-edge manufacturing lines at HCCB's Rajgarh factory, dedicated to producing Affordable Small Sparkling Packs (ASSP) and Juice Tetra Packs. Beyond expanding manufacturing capabilities, this move is poised to make a substantial contribution to the state's economy. With a robust network of 149 distributors and 127,080 retailers, HCCB plays a pivotal role in Madhya Pradesh's retail sector, distributing approximately 10 million cases across 29 districts.
In reciprocation, the Madhya Pradesh Government has committed comprehensive support to expedite HCCB's procurement of necessary permissions, approvals, and clearances, aligning with the state's policies and regulations.
Himanshu Priyadarshi, Chief Public Affairs, Communications, and Sustainability Officer at HCCB, stated, “This investment is a significant step in our journey with Madhya Pradesh - a state that is poised for growth and development. We see this as an opportunity to deepen our commitment and align our growth with the state’s vision. This is more than an expansion of our business operations; it is about reinforcing our roots in a state that is key to our market strategy and a hub for innovation. We envisage this project as a catalyst not only for regional economic growth but also as a conduit for nurturing local talent, thereby contributing to the socio-economic progress of Madhya Pradesh.”
Having invested over Rs 311 crore in Madhya Pradesh since 2000, including recent expansions in 2022 and 2023, HCCB has consistently demonstrated its commitment to enhancing production capabilities and supporting the local economy. This latest financial commitment not only cements its industrial presence in the state but also aligns with HCCB's dedication to delivering innovative and high-quality products to consumers in Madhya Pradesh.
HCCB's engagement in Madhya Pradesh transcends business investments, extending to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. These projects focus on water rejuvenation, skill development, and sustainable agriculture. Notably, the initiatives have impacted 1200 youths in sales and marketing training, 1500 women in digital and financial literacy, and over 100 farmers in adopting sustainable agricultural practices. Additionally, HCCB has facilitated the installation of water ATMs and Smartboards, contributing to community resources.
