KR Choksey’s research report on Britannia Industries

Despite a challenging environment, Britannia Industries continued its strong growth momentum in topline growth at 7.6% YoY (domestic sales grew by 8.4% while exports declined by 4.8%), through its healthy mix of a robust portfolio, direct distribution, and enhanced distribution infrastructure. Britannia commenced its journey to become a total food company in 2018 and entered various product categories such as salted snacks, milkshakes, cream wafers, dairy products, value-added dairy products, and croissants incremental volume growth can be expected as distribution of these products increase contribution. However, the contribution from these new categories is still at an embryonic stage. Britannia’s strategy is to focus on value-added products that carry higher margin milk-based drinks, chees, and dairy whiteners. Britannia is working on improving its distribution at a rapid pace, reducing the gap with the top players. Direct reach has increased by more than 26% over the last two years to 2.49mn outlets. the pace is expected to continue at 200k addition per year.
