Pepsico Changethegame
Every woman undergoes menstruation for at least 40 years of her life, yet in India, majority of them do not have access to basic hygiene products to manage their periods. Apart from sanitary napkins, which are used by about 12% of women in the country, other alternatives such as cloth pads, biodegradable pads, tampons, menstrual cups and other innovative products exist in the market.
As a new entrant in the menstrual hygiene products market, each participating team will be required to come up with an alternative product strategy keeping in view the market segment it would like to target, against the backdrop of a host of constraints such as competition, government regulation, regulations pertaining to waste management, sustainability and scalability.
