Our May performance had also showed considerable improvement as we navigated the current challenges to emerge successfully with our combating strategy to overcome the muted environment. Our margins grew due to stringent cost control measures and all our new products performed well, particularly the personal hygiene and immunity building categories. Going forward, we expect the growth momentum to continue.”
Harsha V Agarwal, Director, Emami Limited said, “Responding to the current consumer preference for the health & hygiene segment including immunity boosting products, our Zandu Healthcare portfolio, comprising especially of the immunity building products have performed exceedingly well during the quarter, garnering a double digit growth of 23%. BoroPlus portfolio, led by the personal hygiene products like hand sanitizer and soaps as well as the pain management portfolio have also grown by 28% and 15% respectively. The discretionary & seasonal products viz. 7 Oils, Kesh King, Navratna etc which suffered during April and partially in May, have since recovered to a large extent in the month of May. We will be rolling out few more new products in health & hygiene segment in the coming couple of months.”
