“The quarter posed an uphill task for the economy in wake of Covid-19 and caused significant disruptions due to lockdowns imposed to curtail its spread. Factories, depots, transport & vendors across the supply chain were impacted. Our nimble culture helped us quickly adapt to the situation & meet the market demand,” said Varun Berry, Managing Director of Britannia Industries.

The management attributed the cost efficiency and reduced advertising as reasons behind doubling of bottomline during the quarter.

“We were quick to resort to cost efficiencies through extraction of supply chain efficiencies, reduction in wastages and fixed costs leverage. We also rationalise media spends. These measures helped us improve the shape of our business and record a massive 670 bps increase in operating profit during the quarter,” said Berry.
