Areas of focus

The company’s constant focus on key thrust areas that includes premiumisation of the product range, expanding the brand’s retail footprint through new stores, strengthening the distribution network, increasing the brand’s presence through omni-channel and driving data-driven consumer engagement has led to growth in revenue and gross margin.
