    The consolidated net income, however, during the period under review remained almost flat at Rs.1,922.65 crore compared with Rs.1,909.93 crore during the 2013-14 fiscal, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

    It said the company recognised a non-cash impairment loss under exceptional items relating to its businesses in China and Eastern Europe.

    "The year saw a strong focus on the green and specialty tea category, innovative product launches and strong marketing campaigns," it said.

    Its tea business, in the review period, recorded sales of 100 million kg -- its highest sales in a year -- while under the Tetley brand it expanded the flavoured tea portfolio in Britain and Canada.

    During the 2014-15 fiscal, the company entered the premium black tea segment in Australia with a range of single origin teas.
