In news from the FMCG sector...

Tata Consumer Q4 Results: Net Profit Slumps 44% Sequentially, Margin Contracts

Tata Consumer Products saw a fall in quarterly consolidated profit and a contraction in margin over the preceding three months as expenses rose.

Net profit of Tata Tea and Tata Salt maker declined 44% sequentially to Rs 1.3 bn in the January-March period, according to an exchange filing.

While India beverages and foods businesses maintained revenue, the international beverage business revenue declined versus the December quarter.

"Consolidated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) growth for the quarter was impacted by tea inflation in India and increased investments, that more than offset the strong EBITDA growth in India food and International business," the company said in its earnings presentation.

During the year, Tata Salt gained market share with its value-added salts portfolio growing faster, which is in line with the company's premiumisation strategy. The company added five new products to its ready-to-cook category under the "Tata Sampann" brand. They include "haldi doodh" mix, "masala daliya khichdi" mix, dhokla mix, supergrain ragi idli and supergrain ragi dosa mixes.
