Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) is reportedly bringing on board RS Sodhi, former Managing Director of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), to help grow its grocery business.
The move aims to expand Reliance Retail Ventures Limited’s (RRVL) presence in India’s grocery space, with a particular focus on fruits and vegetables.
Sodhi will also oversee the strengthening of Reliance’s consumer brand presence. However, there has been no official confirmation from either party about Sodhi’s appointment.
Sodhi’s extensive experience with GCMMF is expected to help Reliance compete with established players like Amul and Mother Dairy.
The development comes as Reliance has been launching new products, including in the home and personal care spaces, and reviving the Campa Cola soft drink brand.
