They believe in three key approaches to creating true value for society- Responsible Sourcing, Responsible Operations, and Responsible Business.

In 2020, Adani Wilmar's involvement in the deforestation of parts of South Asia came under heavy criticism. Following that, in 2021, the Indian market regulator, SEBI, put on hold Adani Wilmar's ₹4500 crore IPO due to an investigation that was pending against the flagship entry of ports-to-energy conglomerate Adani Group.

COVID-19 Impact

Initially, the COVID-19 imposed lockdown impacted the demand pattern for Adani Wilmar. The company stated that it was working hard to keep all of its plants operational to ensure that there is no shortage of edible oil and food products for consumers in the market. Even though half of its plants were in areas marked as COVID-19 hotspots, the company managed to ensure an uninterrupted supply of edible oil and food products. To reduce its dependence on roadways, Adani Wilmar increased the transportation of its products through railways. The company used mini rakes with a capacity of 1,000 tonnes, instead of the full rakes of 3,000 tonnes capacity to transport limited production and dispatch capacity.

Future Prospects

The company has already started planning and investing into their future. Some of these major plans include:
  • While the company is already a market leader in edible oil, they are increasing their presence in the FMCG sector and introducing more products. Recently they acquired Kohinoor Rice.
  • Consumers are starting to prefer packaged food over loose grains more for their staples, and a 14% increase in demand for this category is expected.
