  • There are a lot of issues regarding the volume growth(in FMCG sector). Yes, there has been some sort of slowdown but I would like to point out 3 things; first is that the FMCG data doesn’t capture the unorganised sector sales, so from that point of view there could bias. Second, the volume growth of 5-6 percent could be a statistical artifact and third is that the consumers are now moving towards healthier options. Therefore, argument of small pack of losing momentum seems to coexist with such an argument

  • I think the consumption situation is soft, also I think it's not just the consumption situation. It is also the liquidity in the channel. So both are perhaps impacting the category growths in different sectors. While at one end there is both modern trade and e-commerce driving a little bit of premiumisation, I believe that there are some channel things which are changing in the form of channel dynamics
