The net realisation increased by 10.4 per cent to Rs. 173.7 per case primarily due to a price increase, taken towards the end of the corresponding quarter last year, in selected SKUs and continued improvement in the mix of smaller SKUs (250ml), especially the energy drink, it said.

According to the company, its total sales volumes rose by 24.7 per cent in Q1 CY2023 to 22.4 crore cases compared to 17.9 crore cases in Q1 CY2022, on account of strong demand across regions in India.
