Sandeep Kataria, CEO, Bata India Limited, said, “India is one of the most important markets for Bata globally and we aim to make Bata accessible to the fashion-forward customers in Tier 2-4 smaller cities via the franchise stores. Over the last 2 years, we have increased our presence in smaller towns and reinvigorated our portfolio to offer more contemporary, fashion and casual styles for the younger generation.”

“We have seen strong demand for the new products, which is driven by multiple campaigns featuring celebrities from Bollywood and cricket world. Every season, we launch 100’s of new styles & designs from our global & Indian design centres, resulting in new arrivals being launched every Friday in stores.
