Lotte Choco Pie for all occasions - My Review

Lotte is a South Korean conglomerate that has its offices spread across the globe with more than 60,000 employees on its rolls. In India, they are into the food segment. They have their own factories in Chennai, Cuddalore and Rohtak.

Lotte is a market leader when it comes to Choco Pie. I am sure most of you who are reading this would have tasted the Choco Pie at least once in your life. There are two flavours of Pie - Choco Pie and Cocoa Pie.

Lotte has 4 regional offices, 26 Carrying and Forwarding Agents(CFAs), more than 2,000 distributors with a coverage of more than 1 million outlets. There are more to the brand which we will see in a separate post.






Why Lotte Choco Pie?

Firstly, it is made of 100% vegetarian products.

Secondly, it has no preservatives.

Last but not the least, it is soft and tastier which would just melt in your mouth. I would say that this is a better gifting option during special days and occasions like festivals. This is easily available across the country and you can even place the order on online portals like Amazon, Big Basket, Flipkart to name a few. Also available on leading offline stand-alone and supermarket chains.

They are available in various packs. The bigger the pack, the better is the pricing. You can get better pricing on 12 and 18 packs. I always go for bigger packs to maximise savings. I have decided to celebrate the upcoming festivals in the coming months including Dusshera, Ganesh Chathurthi, Gokulashtami, Diwali, Christmas, New Year to name a few with Lotte Choco Pie and the other products of Lotte(candies). 

Look out for the next post on candies coming up super soon.

Expressing his enthusiasm in welcoming diners to their favourite Dineout partner restaurants in town, Ankit Mehrotra, Co-Founder & CEO - Dineout said, “Most food-lovers across the country have been sitting on the fence for weeks (if not months) about going back to their favourite restaurants in town. With the COVID-19 health advisory, it's understandable why millions of Indians are impatiently waiting for the day they can finally step out, and into their favourite restaurants, instead of eating it on their couch. With leading restaurants across the country beginning to open their doors past delivery & takeout, our #UnlockWithDineout campaign is aimed at reminding millions of Indian foodies of what they have missed out on. We are confident the ‘see it to believe it’s sanitization & hygiene-related measures such as fully vaccinated staff & socially distanced seating will reassure diners that we are prepared to take on this ‘new normal’ as they enjoy incredible dining out experiences.”

 

Here is a quick glimpse into some of the salient hygiene-related features established at Dineout partner restaurants:


  • Fully Vaccinated Staff: Dineout has curated a special list of partner restaurants that host fully vaccinated restaurants & support staff for the peace of mind of diners.

  • Clinical Hygiene Powered By Equinox Labs: A unique Food Hygiene Rating powered by a leading FSSAI Notified and NABL Accredited Food Safety & Hygiene Audit firm.

Press Release - Quote From Ankit Mehrotra, CEO & Co-founder-Dineout Maharashtra's Lockdown


Ankit Mehrotra, CEO & Co-founder 
- Dineout said, “Maharashtra’s night curfews and complete lockdown on weekends is going to severely impact the state’s F&B industry. Dining out contributes 80% of restaurant revenues, with over 60% of the business happening on weekends. Given the restaurants in these cities are already operating at around 60% of pre-COVID numbers, 20% outlets were forced to convert to Dark Kitchens while 30% of the restaurants in Mumbai & Pune have shut down permanently. Most restaurants are taking COVID-safe measures by adopting contactless tech in their daily operations to ensure the least possible contact and risk while living through the pandemic. These measures to close dining out and operate only for takeaway & delivery will leave no room for their survival. It’s high time that the government acknowledges the loss and step in to bail out the industry from this collapse.

Press Release: Flat 50% off Real Deals on Dineout’s Great Indian Restaurant Festival this March!

 


New Delhi, 25th February 2021: The much-awaited 6th edition of Dineout Great Indian Restaurant Festival (GIRF), India’s largest restaurant festival, is all set to be held from 26th February to 31st March, 2021 at 10,000 leading restaurants across 20 cities. During the festival, the brand will offer flat 50% off on restaurant bills at a host of leading restaurants including JW Marriott, Radisson, Mainland China, Punjab Grill, Oh Calcutta, The Irish House, The Great Kabab Factory, Mad Over Donuts, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Barbeque Nation, Cafe Delhi Heights & many more. 

Flat 50% off Real Deals on Dineout’s Great Indian Restaurant Festival this March!

  • Guaranteed flat 50% off at more than 10,000 restaurants, across 20 cities

  • Early access, 50% off on membership and assured cashback with Dineout Passport

  • Existing HDFC Bank Credit Card users get additional 15% off using Dineout Pay

As the industry gets back to normalcy after a year of shutdown and loss of income, Dineout aims to bring back users to dine out again with GIRF and help elevate the restaurant industry back on its feet stronger. To spread the cheer among its users, Dineout has also launched a new brand campaign “Dineout Par Dekho” that tells consumers about the real 50% off deals, which is unlike any other deals available in the market. The campaign is based on the simple insight of how Indians love to save and get value for their money, marrying it with their love for food and how it is enjoyed best when served hot and fresh.

To make their offering even more lucrative, Dineout has partnered with HDFC Bank, InterMiles and Kingfisher. From cashback on buying deals to offering an extra 15% off (over and above the 50% off) using existing HDFC Bank Credit Cards, users can get a massive 65% off on their bills! InterMiles users can earn 1 InterMile for every Rs. 40 spent via Dineout Pay.

Commenting on the latest edition of GIRF, Mr. Ankit Mehrotra, CEO & Co-founder - Dineout said, “Our biggest issue was communicating to users that when we say 50% off we mean it. In the age of online sales where brands often use big % discounts and not mean them, customers lose trust. Dineout Par Dekho reduces that gap and further enables the trust in users with the end result being more footfall & business for restaurants! Moreover we saw a massive spike this Valentine’s Day with 40% more users dining out as compared to last year. Which means 2021 is going to be a good year for all of us!” 

This is our 4th edition in the row partnering with Dineout for their Great Indian Restaurant Festival. Dining out is an important category for us where our existing cardholders frequently use our services on a large scale. Our partnership with Dineout is like a glove that fits perfectly ensuring a growth for both the brands and making users the ultimate winners from this association!” says, a spokesperson from HDFC Bank. 

Mr. Vikas Chandak, Senior VP & Head – Business & Strategic Partnerships, InterMiles said, “The 2021 edition of GIRF is our third consecutive year of an immensely successful association with Dineout, which over the years have helped us create a robust presence for InterMiles as a location agnostic Dining rewards currency. In the last few months we have also strengthened the Dine platform on the InterMiles App where our members can earn & redeem miles as well as leverage InterMiles as a currency to secure additional savings on dining bills at over 10,000 restaurants across India, over and above Dineout offers. We are encouraged by the revival of the F&B industry and hopeful that our differentiated value proposition will make InterMiles the most preferred Dining Rewards destination for our members on an everyday basis

 

Speaking on the association, Gurpreet Singh, Head, Marketing, United Breweries Ltd said. “We are delighted to have Kingfisher associated with Dineout’s Great Indian Restaurant Festival and sponsor their beverage category. With unmatched deals on food and beverage, we look forward to keeping the good times flowing for our patrons. This is a perfect time to make the most of some great deals and enjoy the good times with limitless options

Dineout has a legacy of having organized 5 successful editions of GIRF since 2017. Last year, Dineout seated 5 million diners and generated 550Cr revenue for their restaurant partners. It also helped its participating restaurants garner higher revenue than the usual days. They are optimistic about this year’s addition too with dining out being one of the prime forms of entertainment and being profitable for the restaurant industry.
