For the first time in the food ecosystem, Godrej Vikhroli Cucina is getting the food community together for meaningful conversations which are beyond food or their professional expertise. Through ‘Vibe with Varun’, Godrej Vikhroli Cucina aims to nudge these personalities to share something about themselves starting with their childhood to interesting incidents and experiences.
Speaking on the launch of the series, Sujit Patil, Vice President & Head – Corporate Brand and Communications, Godrej Industries Limited and Associate Companies, said, “Godrej Vikhroli Cucina has always been seen as a thought leader in the food space. The new ‘Vibe with Varun’ series is an attempt to engage our audiences with fresh content in an innovative, personalized never-heard-before stories of personalities from the food and culinary world. This series will not only drive engagement for our owned media platforms but also enable us to subtly integrate foods brands like Godrej Yummiez, Real Good Chicken, Godrej Veg Oils, Godrej Jersey, that are part of the Godrej ecosystem.”
He further added, “ ‘Vibe with Varun’ follows a rapid-fire like format that is snackable and shareable for social media. Be it a wine connoisseur, a baking expert to cheese specialist or a food historian, no other food platform has brought together such an interesting mix of experts for conversations.”
Chef Varun Inamdar, said, “Food content is most consumed across formats and digital platforms. However, there is still scope to give a platform to real-life experiences and anecdotes of people shaping up the culinary world through fun conversations. I along with Godrej Vikhroli Cucina bring some industry leaders and flag bearers who also happen to be my friends from the food space and have relevant conversations. ‘Vibe with Varun’ will be an interesting watch for people who love food as well as work in the food space as they get to see a completely different side of the personalities otherwise known for their craft. And more so it is also one-of-the-first chat shows of its kind in the food world.”
