With a small research on the internet today about the India’s retailing market to understand who owns what. In the end, I was not so pleasantly surprised that 95% – 100% of everything you and me use in terms of FMCG products belong to a foreign company.
Yess ! that’s true.
Let’s see who owns What?
Hindustan Unilever (HUL)
In addition to that PepsiCo also owns
- Lehar Namkeen
- Uncle Chipps
P & G
Hindustan Unilever is not a Hindustani company! In fact none of the above are. (In terms of actual ownership – the parent company I mean).
Not even INDULEKHA, TIDE, KURKURE, AIR & LOVELY and VICKS.
