Balrampur Chini focuses on distilleries

Balrampur Chini, a major sugar producer company, is focussing on the distillery business that has helped the company to lower losses in the July-September quarter, reports CNBC-TV18.

Pramod Patwari, CFO of the company said that the management of the company is confident of increasing the contribution of the distillery unit to 35% from the existing 20%.

“At the peak level, we are expecting a total turnover of around Rs 6,000 crore, and looking at a distillery revenue of 35 percent within that. Our distilleries are going to commission by this month, and maybe one of the distilleries will be commissioned by the first week of December,” he was quoted as saying by CNBC-TV18.
