ITC – A Major brand

ITC, which introduced over 50 fresh fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) products across categories in the last fiscal period to reinforce its offerings, said Aashirvaad is now over Rs 4,500-crore in terms of annual consumer spending with a diverse conglomerate expanding the brand into specific sections.

ITC is a major FMCG marketer in India and involves branded packaged food, personal care goods, education & stationery goods and agarbatti, among others, in its non-cigarette or fresh FMCG company. In quickly increasing new FMCG company vertical, the Kolkata-based cigarette-to-hotel major has constructed 25 mother brands.

ITC As An Emerged Leader

In our new companies like FMCG, where there is significant headroom for growth, this potential is even higher, “said Sanjiv Puri, chairman and managing director of ITC, in the recent annual report of the company.

Last month, Puri was appointed chairman of the company, two days after its longest-served chairman Y C Deveshwar passed away.

Aashirvaad atta has strengthened its geography-wide market and its sector leadership position, the firm said. Variants in the value-added portfolio such as multigrain atta and select atta continue to record strong development, driven by greater salience in the contemporary channel of commerce and e-commerce.
