The quarter, however, witnessed a category slowdown across our portfolio.

This also reinforced our efforts towards building an ecosystem for scientific collaboration and knowledge-sharing among healthcare professionals.

We bolstered our go-to-market strategy and strengthened our partnerships across omni channel stores, increasing the availability and access of our brands across online and offline platforms, thereby helping meet the needs of our consumers and customers.
We launched the first-of-its-kind policies for employees, including the end-to-end support for children with special needs and a co pay India Day Care policy, we continued to foster an environment of equal opportunities at the workplace.
