Company background

Godrej Consumer Products, or GCPL, is part of the Godrej Group, a midsize Indian conglomerate. It has large shares of the market for insecticides, housewares, soap and hair care products in India.

The Godrej Group was founded in the 1890s by the grandfather and great-uncle of Adi Godrej, the current chairman of both the group and GCPL. The group entered the soap business in the 1910s, raising the brand's profile by offering products made without animal fat in consideration of India's many vegetarians. In 2001, Godrej Soaps, the group's core unit, was split into two entities, one of which is GCPL.

GCPL is working to expand overseas, particularly in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It bought a major Indonesian household insecticides company in 2010. It has also bought a number of African companies and is planning to purchase a South African baldness treatment company, possibly by the end of 2015. The group's main subsidiaries and the founding family together hold more than 60% of GCPL shares.
