However, the company said the financial results of the current financial period are not fully comparable with previous years’ corresponding period due to merger of retail undertaking of Heritage Foods Retail with the company.

Revenue from operations for the current period are also not comparable with the corresponding earlier period due to introduction of GST from July 1 which replaced excise duty and other input taxes.
