Leading vermicelli maker Bambino said recently that it has inked an agreement with leading pizza chain Domino’s Pizza for distribution of wheat pasta.
So far, we have supplied 40 tonnes of pasta made of durum wheat to Domino’s outlets in Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata and Noida, he said.
“For the first time, a global fast-food chain has approved the quality of pasta manufactured by the domestic company,” Das noted, adding that it is also aiming to supply its products to other multi-national fast-food chains.
After registering a growth of 20 per cent in turnover, Bambino targets a business of Rs 220 crore in 2009-10 (October-September) through the launch of new products like functional food (which have dietary components providing health benefits beyond basic nutrition).
The company’s turnover increased to Rs 180 crore in 2008-09, compared with Rs 150 crore in the year-ago period.
