Commenting on the win, Sanwal said: “We are proud to be the recipient of this prestigious industry award and happy to be recognized on a global platform. We at MDF constantly aim to provide best value to our customers, who make us their preferred retailer.”

Mumbai Duty Free launched a global first marketing campaign, Mumbai Duty Free is now Free, having researched the behaviour of Indian travelers, who seek the best value for their purchase.

The campaign provides discount vouchers, redeemable coupons, and complementary experiences from partner brands which the customer can use for making purchases in India.

“With double the value back from partner brands, a customer’s purchase at Mumbai Duty Free technically becomes free,” the operator said.
