Delighting rural audience with a packet of affordable tea with innovative small pack per price point

Ispahani Tea noticed that consumers find discomfort in buying 10gm of tea for Taka 7 as MRP or any other odd price point. Their research showed that consumers do not prefer Taka 7 or Taka 13 odd points as it is inconvenient to tender exact change at point of sale. Consumers instead prefer note sizes of 5 Taka or 10 Taka which are easier to carry in the wallet as notes are commonly available.

Innovative solution : Ispahani resolved this price fallacy with an innovative packaging of 7.5 gms for Taka 5 and Taka10 for 15 gms pack.

To propagate this innovative small packaging to its rural audience across Bangladesh, Ispahani partnered with Httpool, Facebook’s Authorized Sales Partner for their Facebook video campaign.
