Wipro's Sunflower Vanaspati brand sold to Cargill India
Cargill India, US-based food producer and marketer, acquired the Sunflower Vanaspati brand from Bangalore based IT major Wipro. Wipro wanted to get out of its traditional edible oil business.
- The acquisition is expected to make Cargill, (that processes 4,000 tonne per day) the largest vanaspati player, with Rath, Gemini and Nature Fresh Purita brands in its portfolio.
Sunflower Vanaspati is made out of edible vegetable oil and soya oil. The consumption of vanaspati oil is declining as people are choosing refined oil over it because of health concerns.
