In conversation with Restaurantindia.in, Piyush Mathur, Founder and Managing Director, Heilo Beverages Pvt. Ltd talks about the brand’s marketing strategy and future plans.
As you know India has a huge market for beverages, what keeps Peaur beverages apart from other competitor brands?
Our philosophy is “More in Every Drop” that keeps us apart from our competitors. We are driven to provide the purest form of beverage across categories. For our natural mineral water there is no purification process involved so nothing is added or removed from the point of extraction. Water in the bottle is the same water extracted from the source. Every drop of Peaur is untouched! It comes straight from the banks of River Ganges from extraction to packaging everything happens at Rishikesh with highest levels of hygiene standards. Our extraction plant and the packaging unit are close to avoid the entry of any impurities in our products.
Even our juices that we provide to our customers is as pure and natural as it can get with no adulteration or added chemicals, we do not use any added flavors and the packaging is also one of a kind, we use UV protected steel can containers to keep the product safe from impurities and away from any risk of contamination.
How the idea behind the brand incepted?
Peaur is not just a fancy logo or a badge as a brand. My ideology as a member of Hielo Beverages India is to provide the beverage which interacts, engages and be merited on the basis of its quality and the panache factor. Peaur is one such discovery that evolves and extends as a rage to emerge as the finest producer of premium natural drinks in India including but not limited to natural mineral water, natural nectar based fruit juices, natural flavored vitamin rich water and sparkling water as its spread of winged varieties.
Being new in Indian market, how you’re planning to expand the roots of your brand in F&B industry?
The assured future plans and as a practice as I say will keep sipping Peaur. And as the growth demands after addressing to the commitment in India by tapping promising market of Tier 1 & Tier 2 cities, we shall explore and make India proud with our Peaur products globally. As per the market trends and needs we stand open for all sorts of marketing and collaboration that makes Peaur reach and emerges as a need of every mankind.

In current scenario beverage sector is on the higher side, what major challenges do you see in the market to grow?
As I express, challenges makes you deliver the best out of you. Having said that I took the challenge of touching the industry which conveys the risk and adaptation to self and the organization that may emerge as a harsh encounter while organizing and structuring the thought into the invention of the Peaur-fect (perfect) product. The major challenge was to help people distinguish between packaged drinking water and natural spring mountain water with its benefits to the mankind as a high rich mineral contributor to the soul.
Addressing, the fruit juices where every whiff and granule is naturally sourced adding no adulterants, preservatives, and chemicals was to be educated to the end consumers. In a nutshell, positioning and selling a premium range and a priced beverage in India was not going to be an easy task, but with our determination and commitment to create a healthy world being in future we take this challenge as our pride.

A lot of purchases made in the FMCG category are driven by impulse, therefore a good quality and attractive packaging goes a long way in connecting with the consumers.
