"The market is opening up gradually post the lockdown, and we are witnessing a positive uptake in both domestic retail as well as exports.  The company faced supply chain constraints in June, however, the company has undertaken various countermeasures, some of which have started yielding results in June itself. The company is expecting to overcome these in the month of July," said the company.
