• ITC Foods uses its e-chaupal network and rural retail for sourcing potatoes resulting in products at lower costs
• ITC hired the services of O&M for advertising and branding Bingo. The advertising blitzkrieg created brand awareness and an instant recall among the customers
• ITC offers 4-5 % higher margins to the retailers for promoting Bingo better as compared to the competitors
• The launches have been made keeping in mind the regional differences in the palate of the Indian populace

Their ability to raise input costs is high. ITC has created a venture e-Choupal, which has a network of 4 million-plus farmers.

• Higher cost of input commodities leads to lower margins, making the market unattractive for distributors and retailers. Key inputs for BINGO include corn, oil, soya, potato and food grains.
• Shortage of any input material affects production and thereby impact distribution.
• A limited scope of substituting inputs makes ITC vulnerable to cost fluctuation of the input commodities.
• ITC has a very strong distribution network, thanks to its vast network which has already been set up for its cigarette brands. The cost of distributing to a local kirana store, which may be the only one shop in a village, is very high unless you carry multiple categories. In ITC’s case the network was already established, so riding on the same supply chain BINGO distribution was modelled, and it shared the cost with other business divisions. In addition to already existing network, retail tie-ups, especially with Biyani 's Future Group – Big Bazaar, forms a strong distribution network.
