The glucose biscuits category in India is estimated at Rs 1,500 crore. The Parle G brand faces competition from Britannia’s Tiger brand of biscuits.

The company's flagship brand, Parle G, contributes more than 50 per cent to the company's total turnover. The other biscuits in the Parle Products’ basket includes Monaco, Krack Jack, Marie, Hide n Seek, Cheeslings, Jeffs, Sixer and Fun Centre.

The confectionery business, which is the other division of Parle Products, currently contributes only 15 per cent to the company's total turnover.
