Adani Wilmar share price: Adani Wilmar plunges 5% after slashing edible oil prices by Rs 10




New Delhi: Shares of the FMCG company plunged more than 5% in early trading on Monday after cutting prices of its edible oils by Rs 10 as the government reduced import duties on the product.

According to a statement by Adani Wilmar, the maximum retail price (MRP) of the 1 liter pack of Fortune Refined Sunflower Oil has been reduced to Rs 210 from Rs 220.

The MRP of the Fortune Soyabean and Fortune Kachi Ghani (mustard oil) 1 liter packs has been reduced to Rs 195 from Rs 205.

Stocks with revised prices will soon be available in the market, according to a report. This decline in oil prices follows the central government’s decision to reduce import taxes on edible oils, making them more affordable, the report adds.
