The company said that the past quarter was an unprecedented one due to the COVID-19 pandemic impacting company's operations in the early part of the quarter. However with the logistical challenges being resolved and approvals for re-starting manufacturing plants and operating C&FA warehouses coming in, the company was able to recover from the early setbacks.
"While the sales for the month of April 2020 was impacted due to COVID, the month of May saw a revival of sales growth followed by double digit growth in the month of June.
Coping with the pandemic, the company continues to be agile in its responses and execution of its plans. Stepping up the marketing initiatives for its marquee brands, Zydus Wellness has been harnessing the power of digital communications and social media to reach out to its customers," the company said.
Zydus Wellness is engaged in the development, production, marketing and distribution of health and wellness products.
