SWOT – Risk Analysis:

Opportunity & Strength 

  1. Diversified product selection with prominent brands covering the majority of everyday kitchen necessities in India.
  2. Brand recall is high, and the client base is large.
  3. In India, we are the market leader in branded edible oils and packaged foods.
  4. One of India’s major producers of basic oleochemicals.
  5. It is capable of getting raw materials from leading worldwide sources.

Weakness & Threat

  1. Adani Wilmar’s activities are dependent on a steady supply of raw materials such as unprocessed palm oil, soyabean oil, and sunflower oil, as well as wheat, rice, and oilseeds. The Company does not have long-term supply agreements for its raw materials, and any rise in the cost or shortage of such raw materials might have a negative impact on its results of operations. 
  2. Seasonal changes could also cause fluctuations in the results of operations.
  3. Adani Wilmar is heavily reliant on imported raw materials and finished goods in addition to domestic supplies, and a variety of factors may result in an insufficient supply of raw materials and finished goods or an increase in its costs associated with obtaining sufficient raw materials and finished goods to meet the operational requirements.
  4. Other nations’ import restrictions on the products might have a substantially detrimental effect on the company, financial position, and operating results.
  5. Adani Wilmar is exposed to business risks inherent in the palm oil and soy oil sectors, which may have a negative impact on its operations.
