Ruchi Soya Industries Ltd on Sunday reported a 3 percent increase in its net profit to Rs 234.07 crore for the quarter ended in December 2021.

Ruchi Soya said it has strongly positioned itself with diversified portfolio of products to capitalize on the trend of shift in consumer preferences towards trusted and branded packaged foods amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company plans to expand its existing product portfolio of nutraceuticals products, the filing said.

Ruchi Soya's portfolio of brands like Ruchi Gold, Mahakosh, Sunrich, Nutrela , Ruchi Star and Ruchi Sunlight continues to witness good response.

Ruchi Soya has over 56,000 hectares under oil palm cultivation engaging with more than 39,000 farmers across nine states in India. The company is also engaged in wind power generation business out of which 19 per cent is used for captive consumption.

Sources had said last week that Ruchi Soya, which is owned by Baba Ramdev-led Patanjali Ayurveda, is likely to hit the capital market with its follow-on public offer (FPO) by the end of this month to raise up to Rs 4,300 crore.
