Radico Khaitan seeking fresh deals with foreign drinks companies

India's Radico Khaitan is reported to be closing in on tie-ups with some unnamed international drinks companies.

Radico Khaitan's senior vice-president for international business, Ankur Sachdeva, was quoted by Reuters today (22 December) as saying that the firm hopes to announce some agreements in the first quarter of 2011.

Sachdeva told just-drinks last month that Radico Khaitan was "in dialogue with a few international drinks companies for import and distribution of their leading brands in India, for both domestic as well as travel retail segments of the market". The group already operates joint ventures with Diageo and E&J Gallo in India.
