Marico acquires health care brand Ingwe

New Delhi, Aug 13 (IANS) India’s fast moving consumer goods and personal care major Marico Ltd Friday said it has acquired health care brand Ingwe from South Africa’s Guideline Trading.

Ingwe has a turnover of Rs.150 million and its range of products includes immuno boosters, Marico said in a regulatory filing.
