Lacoste

Lacoste, Olympic

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Lacoste have announced the launch of the first exclusive Olympic Heritage lifestyle apparel collection, developed by Lacoste.

Lacoste, the Crocodile brand, is present in 120 countries and offers a wide range of products — apparel, leather goods, fragrances, footwear, eyewear, home wear, watches, and more.

According to IOC, the Olympic Heritage collection is an essential element of the new IOC Global Licensing Strategy, developed in line with Olympic Agenda 2020.

Lacoste’s new men’s clothing and accessories line will feature limited edition collections that will reflect the graphic legacy of legendary Olympic Games and would highlight the 50th anniversaries of the Olympic Winter Games Grenoble 1968, and the Olympic Games Mexico City 1968.

The IOC and Lacoste collaboration will continue until 2020, with a collection developed each season, which will initially be sold, starting this summer, in 10 countries: Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Spain and the UK.

Building on Olympic Agenda 2020 and launched in 2014, the IOC Global Licensing Strategy aims to create a tangible connection to the Olympic Games and Olympism through merchandising programmes that are aligned with the Olympic image and enhance brand value and goodwill. The objective is to strengthen and promote the Olympic brand, not only during the Olympic Games but between Games as well.

Mastercard joins hands with Flipkart; makes payments secure for online buyers

MasterCard

Online Shopping

Barcelona, Spain - February 27, 2018 - At Mobile World Congress today, Mastercard announced that Flipkart will be the first merchant in the Asia Pacific region to launch ‘Mastercard Digital Enablement Services (MDES) for Merchants’. The service will enable the card issuing banks to replace Mastercard credit, debit and prepaid card primary account numbers with secure digital tokens. These tokens will allow the merchants to offer enhanced security and customer experience. This announcement not only strengthens Mastercard and Flipkart’s partnership, but also exemplifies both organizations’ efforts to decrease fraud on e-commerce channels.

Storing card information in apps and online is popular among merchants and consumers to reduce checkout friction, enable subscription-based services and recurring payments. However, the security of transactions is extremely important. MDES provides an extra layer of security. In case of token compromise, MDES blocks the transaction, thus eliminating any chance of a fraud. If a device is lost or physical card is compromised, the link in MDES between the tokens and the card/device can be broken - and reissued for the new token or the card- without troubling the consumer.

For better customer experience, it gives cardholders the choice and peace of mind to make secure digital payments from a variety of connected devices through a tap, touch, or click. Moreover, the customer does not need to update the tokens stored with various merchants when a card number or its expiration date changes.

“Flipkart has been at the forefront of payment innovations that have led and accelerated the adoption of e-commerce in India. Through the implementation of the Mastercard Digital Enablement Services, we are happy to introduce our customers to a simple, convenient and secure payment method, create a safe ecosystem and provide superior experiences for them,” said Ranjith Boyanapalli, Vice President of Product at Flipkart.

“We are delighted to partner with Flipkart, the pioneer of India’s e-commerce Industry, to roll out the industry-leading MDES for merchants. Our research indicates that security of payment and convenience are some of the key factors considered during online shopping by consumers. Mastercard tokenization will eliminate a significant ‘hassle factor’ for consumers and offer enhanced security,” said James Anderson, Executive Vice President, Digital Payment Products at Mastercard.

The Flipkart Group is India’s largest e-commerce marketplace and includes group companies Flipkart, Myntra, Jabong and PhonePe.

Propelled by rising smartphone penetration, the launch of 4G networks and increasing consumer wealth, the Indian e-commerce industry has been on an upward growth trajectory and is expected to surpass the U.S. to become the second largest e-commerce market in the world by 2034.

Renault Captur available for sale in India

Renault

New Delhi, September 22, 2017: The list of countries where Renault’s successful SUV is marketed has been extended to include India. Captur was designed and developed by an international technical team which was tasked with proposing a versatile vehicle featuring a bespoke styling/equipment-specification package for the Indian market. Captur production is already under way in Chennai plant.

Over the last five years, Renault has taken significant measures to promote its growth in India through the way it is structured locally, its sales network and its model range. Thanks to this work, it has emerged as one of the fastest-growing automobile brands in India and Renault Captur’s launch marks a new phase in this strong product strategy.

Within few years, Renault’s footing in India has gained significant ground in just a short period of time to become the country’s number one European brand. The launch of Renault Captur will be backed by an expansion of the network’s coverage. In May 2011, the number of Renault sales outlets stood at just 14. The figure now exceeds 300 and is poised to rise further before the end of 2017.

Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Launches in U.S. with New and Improved Real Coca-Cola Taste

Coca-Cola Zero Sugar

ATLANTA - July 26, 2017 - According to The Coca-Cola Company, since its 2005 introduction, Coca-Cola Zero has refreshed hundreds of millions of fans across America with its real Coca-Cola taste and zero calories. From its U.S. introduction into the Coca-Cola trademark brand portfolio to its global expansion, the brand is sold in nearly 160 countries around the world.

Now, through in-house innovation and extensive market testing, Coca-Cola Zero is getting a new name, new look and even more delicious taste, said the company. The no-calorie fan favorite will deliver an even better-tasting recipe and now be called “Coca-Cola Zero Sugar”.

“More than 10 years ago, we launched Coca-Cola Zero with a revolutionary recipe that gave fans real Coca-Cola taste without the sugar and calories. The brand grew strongly after its launch and gained millions of loyal fans over time, but we recognized an opportunity to give the brand another boost and to encourage more Coca-Cola fans to try a great-tasting zero-sugar product,” said Stuart Kronauge, business unit president, USA Operations and senior vice president, Marketing, Coca-Cola North America.

“We’ve used our in-house innovation capabilities to make the great taste of Coke Zero even better and a lot like a Coke. To achieve this, we optimized the unique blend of flavors that gave Coke Zero its real Coca-Cola taste in the new and improved Coca-Cola Zero Sugar recipe. It’s delicious, refreshing and our best-tasting zero-sugar Coca-Cola yet,” Kronauge continued.

As the company continues to create new beverages and evolve its recipes, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar represents the company’s latest zero-sugar product innovation. It joins a roster of nearly 250 other delicious no- and low-calorie beverages offered in the U.S.

This U.S. launch builds on the success and popularity of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar already seen in Great Britain, Mexico and more than 25 other markets around the world, the company said.

Geneva, March 7, 2017: F1 racing legend and Indy 500 champion, Emerson Fittipaldi, unveiled his dream track car, the much-anticipated Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina, at the Geneva Motor Show today.

The ultra-light, all carbon fiber supercar fuses the vision of F1 and Indy Car racing champion Fittipaldi, iconic Italian design company Pininfarina and race-bred German engineering firm HWA AG, and fulfills Fittipaldi’s dream to produce a car with fierce track-racing capabilities, for drivers of all skill levels.

“I have tried for years to explain to others what it truly feels like to be behind the steering wheel of a championship racecar. There is adrenaline and elation all rolled into an awe-inspiring inner fulfillment that leaves you craving for more. This is what our dream team created in the EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina,” said Fittipaldi of the first car to be released under the Fittipaldi Motors marque.

Revealing a commandingly sleek design underscored by an extraordinary power-to-weight ratio, the supercar’s design theme finds astounding aerodynamic expression in the vehicle’s flowing, aggressive lines and assertive yet incredibly beautiful and pure design work.
