Our out of home businesses - NourishCo and Tata Starbucks recorded strong growth during the quarter,” said D’Souza in an exchange filing.
Tata Starbucks recorded strong revenue growth of 57% for the quarter, led by normalized store operations and a revival in out of home consumption.

“While unprecedented inflation and adverse currency movements in our international business have weighed on our margin this quarter, we will be driving structural cost saving initiatives to improve the trajectory going forward. Our transformation agenda to become a leading FMCG company continues to be on track,” said the company.
