Sanjeev Asthana, CEO, Patanjali Foods Limited said “Despite the challenging macro and operating environment, the first half of the fiscal year has ended on a positive note. I am pleased to inform that in the quarter the company performed well on the profitability metrics with both EBITDA and PAT showcasing strong growth on QoQ basis. This growth is despite a flat sequential performance in terms of revenue from operations/total income.
The company’s Food & FMCG segment is performing in line with the targets and saw further expansion of higher contribution in the overall financial performance. This improvement is in line with the tactical shift in our business operations.
The growth in the quarter has come across multiple parameters. The company achieved new heights in its quarterly sales for TSP, deeper penetration of its prominent biscuit brands and positive response from customers for the multiple product launches.
The company’s strategy to increase penetration across different categories of customers through its wide bouquet of offerings, premiumization and multiple price points and strong distribution network is working to be a sustainable model for growth. I am optimistic about the upcoming festival seasons and increase in consumer spends to drive the growth in the coming quarter.
To increase brand awareness and brand penetration, the company has signed well-known cricketer, Mr. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, as a brand ambassador for its range of Soy, Mustard and Sunflower oils range. Mr. Dhoni and Patanjali share common values, and both enjoy popularity and credibility with the public at large.”
