Chandigarh - On National Protein Day, i.e., 27th February 2020, Britannia Industries Limited, one of India’s largest Foods & Dairy Companies, talks about their new consumer promise with their protein rich cheese through the launch of #StartProteinStrongcampaign. According to India’s Protein Paradox*, the underconsumption of protein in Indian households can be pinned down to several influencing factors, a crucial one being the inability to identify the correct sources of protein.

Made with the goodness of cow’s milk, two slices of Britannia Cheese are equivalent to one glass of milk, or 35g of paneer, in terms of protein content.Cow’s Milk is also known to have the highest quality of protein amongst vegetarian sources. The brandthus aims to encourage Indian parents to include Britannia Cheese as a rich and delicious source of good quality protein as part of their children’s diet. Nearly 95% of Indian mothers know about protein as a macronutrient, but only 3% really understand its important functions and why one should consume it. The launch of this new range portrays how Britannia Cheese is committed towards providing a solution to this rather astonishing gap in good quality protein consumption patterns amongst Indians.
