P. R. Dhanushkodi, Chairman, Kalimark Group said, “We are in an exciting phase after embarking on a journey of consolidation and now expansion. This new launch in the water, aerated drinks, juices or soda was a very conscious decision from our side. We felt that Bovonto which is a homegrown brand having immense brand loyalty through at least four generations across Tamil Nadu deserves better, cleaner, hygienically processed and cost-effective healthier drinks. We have always prided in our research, pricing and taste and this time, we are sure, we are going to grab a good size of the beverages market this summer.”
