Mr. Satendra Aggarwal, COO, Ruchi Soya Industries Ltd. said, "The significance of this agreement can be ascertained from the fact that Patanjali is eyeing sales of Rs. 20,000 cr by 2020 from its edible oils range of which large packs will constitute a substantial portion. For Ruchi Soya, this exclusive agreement will not only help manage optimum plant capacities but will also enhance profitability; boost productivity and efficiencies of our sales and distribution system across the country due to enhanced volume throughput.
