According to the company’s official website, Kellogg India opened its first manufacturing plant in Mumbai. Since its inception, the brand has aimed to target the breakfast market with easy-to-make cereals and convenience foods. In its attempt to adapt to the local market and create edibles that are more suited to the Indian palate, Kellogg India launched its breakfast product Kellogg’s Upma early last year.

Mahindra’s tweet instantly caught the attention of netizens, who were quick to share their views on the meme. While many were amused, others commented that it wasn’t as simple to change the eating habits of Indians.

“Our recipes have evolved over 1000s of years. A new recipe can’t just paradrop and take over like Hollywood movie,” read one of the many comments on the viral post.
