The products contain the best ingredients which gives a true fruit taste. The addition of fruit-based drink will now allow us to further leverage our system’s value chain in procuring ingredients and raw materials from the fruit farming community.”
Currently there is a huge potential in the Indian fruit-based beverages market.
