Hindustan Lever Ltd.

The acquisition of 74% stake in Modern Foods has given the company a strategic entry into fresh product distribution and is in line with the company's vision of developing an integrated wheat flour business. In the sluggish market condition HLL's sales witnessed a 6% volume growth and a 1% value growth. Also its export business has grown by 5% in difficult international trading conditions.
