Our performance during the year has been satisfying with significant growth across all our key brands. Dabur has also laid the foundation for strong and profitable growth in the future with an array of new product initiatives that have met with good success and would further blossom over the next couple of years,” Sunil Duggal, Chief Executive Officer, Dabur India Ltd said.
