In the 1900s, the best combination for tea was tiger biscuits! School intervals and a pack of Little hearts, won many hearts. From crunchy rusks to crackers, Marie gold to Nutrichoice, Good day to Bourbon, 50-50 to Milk bikis and a wide range of bread, cakes and dairy products, Britannia evolved. And the nostalgia is no match to that of sandwiches, burgers or pizza these days. Britannia from being a product grew into a brand and then to a legacy. Being one of the largest trusted food brands in India, Britannia is passing a century! Yes, a century and their campaign say it as “100 years gone, 100 years more to go.”
