“We delivered a high single digit volume growth significantly ahead of the market and a resilient double-digit top-line growth of 13%, driven by superlative performance across Divisions and Channels”, Varun Berry, Managing Director, said while commenting on the performance for the quarter. “While the rural markets across FMCG witnessed significant slowdown, we were able to maintain a significant competitive advantage through our focus to enhance rural footprint and our diligent market practices, which is reflected in the robust topline growth and consistent gain in market share”, Berry added. Higher costs of agri-commodities and packaging materials, coupled with lower in-home consumption, dented the earnings in this quarter.
