Sri Sri Ayurveda, the FMCG brand of spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, plans to launch its products in 30 new countries with a focus on Latin America, including Brazil and Argentina, a top company official said.

This expansion will take the number of countries where the brand is present to 60 from 30 currently.

"We will launch Sri Sri Tattva brand of products in 30 new countries with a focus on Latin America, including Brazil and Argentina. We are already present in countries in Middle East, Far East, and Russia, where we will further expand our range," Arvind Varchaswi, MD of the FMCG firm, told PTI here.

The company also plans to launch 1,000 new stores in the next few years, through a partnership with Franchise India, Varchaswi added.
