In terms of the top-line front, the company recorded strong growth in volume and revenues in Q1 of FY2023, on the back of robust performance by FMCG and Foods businesses.

Angshu Mallick, Managing Director, and CEO of Adani Wilmar Limited said, “Adani Wilmar has continued to demonstrate a steady growth on overall volumes, led by an exceptional growth in the foods business. This is despite multiple headwinds that we saw during the quarter with inflation and low consumer offtake being the major concern areas. Our growth has been driven by GTM strategy focused on increased penetration in the semi-urban & rural regions. This increased penetration is also enabling us to grow the foods business at a faster pace."

The company's overall volumes climbed by 15% to 1.19 MMT in Q1FY23 versus 1.03 MMT of the same period last year. In Q1FY23, on segment-wise, edible oil volumes jumped 6% yoy, while Food & FMCG business volumes soared by a whopping 53% yoy, and industry essentials volumes surged 22% yoy.

Mallick added, "While still majority of staples and FMCG products are sold through general trade, we have seen double-digit growth in sales through e-commerce and modern trade. Sales of our new products such as Poha, Khichdi, Total Balance Oil, Soya Chunkies etc., have doubled on a year-on-year basis, though on a low base."

Going forward, Adani Wilmar expects an uptick in the demand in Q2FY23 on the back of festivities and weddings across the country. The company particularly expects growth in demand from rural markets, with expectations of a good monsoon. Further, it expects categories like functional oils/health oils such as rice-bran oil, mustard oil, and blended oils to grow faster.
