The Vadilal group is eyeing over Rs 800 crore sales from ice creams in India this fiscal, expecting higher demand in the peak summer season and strengthened distribution network, a top company official said on Tuesday.
The company saw an adverse impact on its sales due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant lockdowns in the country last fiscal. It, however, did not disclose the numbers for the last financial year.
It had clocked Rs 650 crore sales from ice creams in FY 2019-20. Gandhi refused to share sales recorded in the previous year.
"We are aiming over Rs 800 crore sales from ice creams in the current financial year. We applied learnings from last year when COVID-19 impacted our sales. But we have seen good demand in the last quarter of the previous year. We have strengthened our distribution network and cold chain network,” Vadilal Enterprises Brand Director Aakansha Gandhi told PTI.
