When Indian supermarkets are struggling, a ‘no-brainer’

Indian grocery chain Tata Foods, which is facing pressure from a widening gap in its grocery market, is using a “no-lose” strategy to attract customers. 

It has already said that it will close down at least 50% of its stores in the country by the end of the year, but the chain has been facing some tough competition from local retailers. 

“The market is a no-brainer.

We are very confident in the strength of our products,” CEO Rajesh Rao said. 

Tata Foods has a long history of success in India, with its namesake brand having been sold there for over 80 years. 

In the past, the company has been a pioneer in the retail space.

Its iconic brand of Indian food products, known as Tata Paneer, has been exported to more than a dozen countries around the world, and has been the subject of several international awards. 

According to a Reuters report, Tata Foods is also looking at a sale of its food business to a private equity group, with a value of at least $100 billion, to further diversify its business. 

The chain has also recently said it would not make any layoffs as a result of the government shutdown. 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been urging companies to diversify their businesses as a way to diversifying the economy. 

As part of the move, Tata’s food business has been making investments in India to increase its presence in the market. 

Its latest investments include a project to create more than 4,000 food and beverage jobs in the state of Goa.

India also ranks third in the world for the number of tonnes of fruits and vegetables consumed, behind the United States and France.
