Meanwhile, the Edible oil major on November 1 released its Q2 results wherein the company reported a consolidated net loss of 130.73 crore for the September 2023 quarter, as profitability was badly impacted in the cooking oil business.

The total expenses of Adani Wilmar stood at 12,439.45 crore during the second quarter of this fiscal against 14,149.62 crore in the year-ago period. During the second quarter, the edible oil business contributed 58 percent to the total volumes while cooking oils accounted for 74 percent of the total revenue from operations, which stood at 12,267 crore.

“Profitability was adversely impacted due to loss in the edible oil segment, which was partially offset by better margins in the Food & FMCG and industry essential segments. Edible Oil losses are primarily driven by divergent trends in the spot (physical) and future prices, resulting in hedging losses," Adani Wilmar had said in a release.
