This comes days after Dabur India reported an 8.1% growth in consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2022-23 with an underlying volume growth of 5% in the India FMCG business. Dabur reported a consolidated revenue of ₹2,822 crore in the first quarter of FY23, up from ₹2,612 crore in the same quarter a year ago.

The home care business was up 52%, while the Skin & Salon business reported an 11.4% rise during the quarter. The oral care business, riding on strong performance of its Toothpaste brands, ended the quarter with a 12.5% growth.
