Jyothy Labs chairman and managing director M P Ramchandran said, “We have sustained our growth momentum despite inflationary pressures, rising input costs and moderation in demand. Our sustained focus on visibility of our brands through marketing exercise and advertising spends has helped us to deliver above industry growth. Our portfolio will get a further boost with the launch of innovative products in FY-2015.”

“Going forward we expect growth rate to sustain on the sales and margin front. We continue to enhance our market share in the urban market without losing our focus on the rural market,” he added.
