Wadia Group’s Britannia Industries Ltd. has announced key organisational changes to achieve high growth both in the Indian and international market.

The company’s managing director Vinita Bali has been entrusted with the task of focussing on international markets and tapping new business growth opportunities.

This would allow Britannia to transform into an all-embracing foods company from a company dealing with bakery and dairy products. Ms. Bali will also focus on the Britannia Nutrition Foundation.

The company has also drawn up plans to aggressively scale up its international operations, and, at the same time, increase focus on its large and profitable India operations.

As per the changes, the India operations will now be headed by Chief Operating Officer Varun Berry, who recently joined the company.

“With these changes, we are preparing Britannia for high growth in Britannia’s India operations by catering to the changing food habits of the evolving Indian consumer, and pursuing opportunities for growth in the overall food domain, here and abroad,” said Nusli Wadia, Chairman, Britannia Industries.

“The new structure will help Britannia grow faster in India while it also focuses on growth in the international markets and addresses new business opportunities for the company,” Vinita Bali, MD, Britannia Industries, said.

Britannia’s brands include Tiger, Good Day, Marie Gold, 50-50, Milk Bikis, Treat, NutriChoice, Daily Fresh Dahi and Britannia Cheese.
