Ocean Spray Comes To India
A delegation from Ocean Spray recently visited India. It’s chairman, Peter Povitar Dhillon said “We went India to explore opportunities of doing business there.”
“As a global company, we recognise the huge potential of the Indian marketplace. India has the fastest growing middle class and it is the world’s youngest country in terms of the age of its people.”
“We went there to understand the marketplace because the culture of doing business in India is very different. It was a very positive trip. Now we are thinking about the best ways to educate Indians about the unique benefits of cranberry,” he added.
Recently, cranberries have become a popular health food. Research has found that cranberries can lower the risk of urinary tract infections, particular types of cancer, can improve immune function and decrease blood pressure.
