MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT

1. Industry Structure and Development:

The global economic environment continued to remain challenging during the financialyear 2013-14 with slower than expected growth. In line with the global trend, the Indianeconomy has also slowed down and witnessed desceleration in GDP growth rate by registeringa growth of 4.7% as compared to 5% in the previous year. Persistently high inflation,higher cost of borrowing, high fiscal deficit level and the subdued industrial growth arenot expected to turnaround in the immediate future, signaling that the recovery ineconomic growth will be at a slower pace. Given this backdrop the poultry industrycontinued to grow at satisfactory rates-both in broilers and layers.

The poultry industry is expected to maintain its growth rates in the coming years aswell. Presently, the poultry industry is a Rs.75,000 crore industry that provides directand indirect employment to 5.00 million people and also supports the economy of over 2crore agricultural farmers, especially the maize and soya grower, dependent on thisindustry. 75% to 80% of the cost of production in the poultry industry consists of feedingredients, like maize and soya.

Factors like increasing disposable income and rapid urbanization in most partof India are expected to contribute to the growth in demand for poultry products.

However, lack of adequate cold storage facilities at key locations and retailinfrastructure are the main reasons for slower than anticipated growth of the processingsegment of poultry industry. Higher volatile behaviour of feed ingredients prices is alsoone of the concerns of the poultry industry.
