Multiple consumption occasions with Tata Soulfull

We completed the acquisition of Kottaram Agro Foods, owner of the brand Soulfull in February 2021. It is a brand dedicated to making ancient millets relevant to the 21st century consumer. The company has now been re-named to Tata Consumer Soulfull. Tata Soulfull operates in the health and wellness focused food segment with a portfolio of millet-based products for kids and adults. It is among the fastest growing in India’s ‘better for you’ packaged foods market.

Uncovering the goodness of millets

Millets or ragi is believed to be a 4,000 years old crop that is an excellent addition to one’s diet because of it nutritional value, which is more than most common cereals. The protein content in millets is a rich source of sulphur, amino acids and calcium. Its intake facilitates healthy growth of body, maintenance of blood sugar levels, among other physical benefits. Millet is a ‘good for everyone’ product, which means its nutritional value benefits consumers; its ability to survive with less water and grow using minimal fertilisers, benefits the planet; and yield potential helps farmers.

The growth strategy

At Tata Consumer, we are optimistic about this acquisition because it enables us to expand our product portfolio into the fast growing ‘on-the-table’ and ‘on-the-go’ categories. We also anticipate significant synergies with our existing businesses in areas spanning distribution, procurement, and logistics.
