TTK continues to innovate and added 25 new SKUs during Q1FY23 across all product categories. The Company continues to focus on maintaining healthy margins through improved efficiencies as well as calibrated price increases without any adverse effect on volumes and market share. The company is comfortably placed on the liquidity front and carries free cash of Rs 595 crore which would enable it to tide over the current challenging business scenario.
