Dodla Sunil Reddy – Managing Director of Dodla Dairy said: “I would like to place on record my heartfelt thanks to all the investors who reposed faith in Dodla by subscribing in the IPO. I am pleased with our performance in the last fiscal with Operating revenue of Rs. 19,440 mn which was impacted due to reduced demand caused by the Covid situation while margins and net profits perked up due to improved sales realizations and cost reductions. Going forward, we expect to continue on this growth path while striving to improve margins continuously.

“Dodla will continue to focus on our core products including Milk & Curd while looking to expand the offerings to regions in South India where we are currently not established. We continue to work on value added products and we believe that this will further give a fillip to our product and margin profile in the future.”
