Advertising and sales promotion expense jumped to Rs 193 crore in Q3 FY21 from Rs 185 crore in Q3 FY20. In the trailing quarter, advertising and sales promotion expenses stood at Rs 189 crore.

Commenting on the results, Saugata Gupta, MD & CEO, said, “The Company had a stellar quarter with a very healthy growth in both the India and International businesses. With the core franchises exhibiting strength and new bets in Foods also trending well, we expect the domestic business to deliver much ahead of medium term aspirations over the next few quarters. The International business is also poised to maintain steady growth over the next few quarters. Despite a challenging input cost backdrop, the Company pulled in a resilient margin performance on the back of focused spends and aggressive cost control. Over the medium term, the Company aims to grow the core and build sizeable new franchises through premiumisation, foods and digital brands.”
