Aside from Kohinoor and Charminar, Adani Wilmar has bought Trophy from McCormick, which is well-known in the hotel, restaurant, and catering (or HoReCa) sector.

The combined worth of the three brands is Rs 115 crore. The transaction strengthens Adani Wilmar's position as the number three player in India's branded basmati rice category and corresponds with the company's objective to expand its packaged food business. Kohinoor is classified as premium, whilst Charminar is classified as inexpensive.

Adani Wilmar also Gains Control of Kohinoor's Ready-To-Cook Portfolio

Adani Wilmar also gains control of Kohinoor's ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat curries and meals portfolio. Furthermore, it will assist the corporation in premiumizing its portfolio, which will enhance profits.

In FY22, the packaged food company lost Rs 2,621 crore on revenue of Rs 2,621 crore. Because the company's primary emphasis is on expanding its packaged food line, the remaining IPO proceeds will be used for inorganic expansion.
