Speaking on the acquisition, Ramesh Menon, Group CEO, Wingreens said- “We’re excited to welcome a brand like Postcard with such a strong digital footprint and loyal consumer base, to WingreensWorld. With this acquisition, we look to strengthen our brand portfolio, and further our mission to be a one-stop-shop digital destination for the new age consumer to discover minimally processed, responsibly sourced and healthier eating options.”

We look forward to work with its enterprising founders to grow the brand to its fullest potential, and expand its presence both nationally and internationally.”

About WingreensWorld

Market Size

As per India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector is India’s fourth-largest sector with household and personal care accounting for 50 per cent of FMCG sales in India. 

The market is expected to increase at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.9 per by 2025.

The Indian FMCG industry grew by 16 per cent in 2021 a nine-year high, despite nationwide lockdowns, supported by consumption-led growth and value expansion from higher product prices, particularly for staples.


The Government has allowed 100 per cent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in food processing and single-brand retail and 51 per cent in multi-brand retail. This would bolster employment, supply chain and high visibility for FMCG brands across organised retail markets thereby bolstering consumer spending and encouraging more product launches.

This year, Dabur India is one of the big names so far which have taken non-traditional route to reach out to core consumers. The companyformed an exclusive partnership with energy provider Indian Oil, which will give Dabur’s products direct access to around 14 Crore Indane LPG consumer households across India.

Dabur India achieved its goal to collect, process, and recycle approximately 22,000 MT of post-consumer plastic three months early.
