ITC’s stated leadership ambition in India’s packaged foods business inched a step closer to reality last year, with a 13 per cent increase in sales closing the revenue gap between cookies giant Britannia and Nestle. In ITC’s latest annual report its packaged food business revenue in 2016-17 increased to Rs 8,036.4 crore from Rs 7,097.5 crore the year before, compared with Britannia’s revenue of Rs 8,684.39 crore (Rs 7,947.9 crore the year before).

ITC, therefore, appears to be on course to realise its leadership goal by overtaking both Britannia and Nestle in the foods business over the next 2-3 years. The revenue growth would be brought about by the accelerated introduction of new products, and entry into 7-8 newer categories. The company plans to introduce about 40 new food products in the next one year — a record for ITC — and has recently started selling premium chocolates and coffee. It is the market leader in packaged flour and premium cream biscuits, and the second-largest player in snacks and instant noodles.
