Company speak

Britannia managing director Varun Berry said,”Our results are a reflection of our focus on driving consumer off-take and operational efficiencies to generate sustainable and profitable growth, despite the slowdown that is being witnessed in the FMCG sector. We have passed off the benefits of benign commodity prices and made our brands more affordable to the consumers. We continued our efforts to expand our distribution footprint and ensure efficiency in operations through reduction in wastages and tight management of fixed costs. We move ahead on our innovation journey with the launch of ‘Pure Magic Chocolush’ during the quarter.”
