Higher Gross Profit Margin

Despite inflation and the devaluation of the dollar, Marico capitalized on the decrease in raw material prices. The gross profit margin increased by 5.6% to 57.6% in H1’23-24. This increase in margin led to a 16.5% YoY growth in gross profit.

All these factors contributed to the company’s 24.8% YoY growth in H1’23-24, a commendable achievement considering the adverse macroeconomic conditions.
