Commenting on the results, Mr. Suresh Narayanan, Chairman and Managing Director, Nestlé India said, “I am pleased to share that we have continued to deliver robust sales growth this quarter and breached the Rs. 40 billion (4000 crore) mark. This is attributable to the resilience of my team and the tenacity of our partners. Our endeavour this quarter was to secure our ‘engines of growth’ in this inflationary context and to enable sharp overall business recovery when the pressures abate. The growth is broad-based and while being primarily driven by pricing, has a healthy underlying volume and mix evolution. I am also happy to share that the ‘out of home’ space got back to accelerated growth in channels like hotels, education centres and workplaces. As far as channels are concerned, ‘organized trade’ saw broad based growth across consumers and categories.
We continued to see strong momentum in mega cities and metros, as well as strong acceleration across smaller town classes which reinforces the execution of our RURBAN strategy. We are also heartened by a smart uptick in sales in rural markets this quarter which augurs well for a credible momentum in future. It has been the stated strategy of Nestlé India that we would aggressively seek new platforms and categories for future growth opportunities.”
