It went on to say that Reliance and Sodhi did not respond to inquiries. According to sources, Sodhi’s GCMMF expertise may be used to leverage products in the competition with Amul and Mother Dairy. Sodhi left Amul in January after 41 years at GCMMF.

The news comes as RRVL’s FMCG division, Reliance Consumer Products, has been aggressively expanding its presence through the introduction of new products. Among these new products are the iconic Campa beverage brand and products in the home and personal care categories.

In addition to Sodhi, RIL has brought on board former Coca-Cola India Chairman T Krishnakumar for RRVL.
