We are focused on bringing in the best products, superior quality and formats that consumers may not have seen in India before. We are very excited to be launching our new summer collection and look forward to consumers enjoying these products through the country.

In Kolkata city classic flavours like Vanilla and Cotton Candy are very popular followed by Chocolate based flavours like Missisippi Mud and Belgian Bliss. Our Gulab Jamun ice cream has also become very popular in a short span of time in Kolkata. BR has also seen a steady and growing demand for sundaes and ice cream cakes. Given the young audience base in the city and the high levels of experimentation, seasonal specials normally tend to do well here.
