India. Maker of Kingfisher beer witnesses 13.5% growth in profit in FY16
United Breweries Limited (UBL), the country’s biggest manufacturer of beer, posted a 13.5 percent growth in net profit in the just concluded financial year. The maker of India’s top selling beer brand, Kingfisher, reported Rs 294.57 crore in profit in FY16 compared to Rs 259.53 crore in FY15.
