Dinesh Shahra, Managing Director & CEO, Ruchi Soya Industries said, " Not only will Ruchi Soya’s widespread distribution network ensure availability and sales of Patanjali’s large packs range; this agreement will further lead to better utilisation of Ruchi’s manufacturing capacity and significantly contribute to cost-efficient operations and augment profitability.”
This MOU will be followed by signing of a detailed service agreement for an initial period of three years, similar to the previous processing and packaging agreements concluded between Ruchi Soya and Patanjali Ayurved earlier this year.
