The TTK Group was founded in 1928 as an indenting agency. Mr. T.T. Krishnamachari pioneered organized distribution in India. The young dynamic businessman set up distribution for a wide range of products ranging from Foods, Personal care products, Writing instruments, to Ethical products. Distribution for various brands like Cadbury’s, MaxFactor, Kiwi, Kraft, Sunlight, Lifebuoy, Lux, Ponds, Brylcreem, Kellogg’s, Ovaltine, Horlicks, Mclean, Sheaffer’s, Waterman’s & much more was established. Today the TTK group spans 30 product categories with 7 group companies and a turnover that cross 30 Billion rupees. The group company products reach every continent of the world. TTK Prestige Ltd. is the flagship company of the group.
The Prestige brand has evolved into the most loved and popular kitchen products brand across India. It has today become a total kitchen solutions provider, and this is our story.
Safety and Durability
UPTO 2001The daily struggle of a housewife in the kitchen, to make healthy food, inspired the TTK group to get Denis Papin's invention, the Pressure Cooker, to India. It was an innovative and novel product at the time. And we were dealing with Indian housewives, who had learnt cooking through traditional methods. At that time, safety during cooking was a big challenge for Indian women, and the Prestige team was determined to provide safety to these women. The pressure release valve and other such innovations made the Prestige Pressure Cooker stand out. Our first iconic ad with the slogan - Jo Biwi Se Kare Pyaar, Woh Prestige Se Kaise Kare Inkaar accentuated our efforts and the Prestige Pressure Cooker became a part of the Indian Kitchen. The other great invention for Indian Kitchens by Prestige was the Pressure Pan.
Are you ready for a smarter kitchen?
2001 - 2007By early 2001, the Indian woman was no longer confined to the kitchen. She stepped out and entered the corporate world. Women started supplementing household incomes by going for jobs and even venturing into businesses. But they still cooked at home. This made us realise the additional burden on housewives and the need to invent products to save their time so that they could be more productive within their limited time. Prestige soon launched the new smart range of innovative cooking and kitchen products and re-launched their new communication campaign titled 'Are you ready for a smarter kitchen?'.
Total kitchen solutions
2008Prestige products and innovations, by now, had covered all requirements of the modern Indian Kitchen. Prestige products were widely appreciated and it grew into a 'Total Kitchen Solutions' provider. Prestige also expanded into the retail network to ensure that we connect with our customers in a direct interface. The Prestige SmartKitchen stores began making waves across the Indian sub-continent.
Microwave Cookers worldwide
2013With increasing demands of Microwave Cookers worldwide, the launch of Prestige Microwave cookers met with great success in the Export market as a result of which the company saw a gross turnover of Rs 13.8 Billion (28% CAGR in 10 years). The Iconic B-town couple Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachan were appointed as brand ambassador. The same year also saw immense growth in the retail network with touching the mark of 500 Prestige Xclusive Retail outlets across India.
Jo Biwi se kare pyaar, woh prestige se kaise kare inkaar
2014With early foundations laid in 2001 to become a part of every Indian kitchen and provide safety during cooking, we embraced the initial efforts which amplified TTK Prestige's inclination and innovations and once again brought back the iconic slogan in a new avatar, "Jo Biwi se kare pyaar, woh prestige se kaise kare inkaar”
Double-digit growth in most difficult circumstances
2015No journey is worth meeting its objective if it can't endure hardships and it's true that Hard Times do reveal the efforts, endeavour and true potential, a brand possesses. In 2015, we stretched our limits and got back to double-digit growth in most difficult circumstances which led to an increase in market share across categories and so we crossed 15 Billion milestone in turnover.
