New Delhi, India, March 12, 2013: Perfetti Van Melle India (PVMI), a confectionery, has partnered with Nimbuzz (, a cross-platform global communications solution and Maxus India, to launch mobile-based brand interactive platform. Under this partnership, Nimbuzz developed a unique proposition for Perfetti’s latest marketing campaign “Mentos Batti Jalao” by leveraging its Chat Buddy module. This Chat Buddy will enable Mentos to leverage the mobile platform and establish a one-to-one connect with its target audience by directly connecting with 20 million Nimbuzz users as chat friend.

Under this initiative, the Chat Buddy will allow Nimbuzz users to install Mentos Batti Jalao Buddy on their mobiles, participate in the contest and solve the Khooni Kaun Hai? murder mystery. The Mentos Batti Jalao Buddy will also release daily HINTS to unfold the mystery. This Chat Buddy will be visible to all Nimbuzz users across India.

Nikhil Sharma, Director-Marketing, Perfetti Van Melle India, said, “With the ever-increasing mobile user base in India, mobile is an important medium for marketers today.
