LT Foods, the India-based group, is aiming to double its annual sales by 2020.

The rice and organic foods supplier is targeting a top line of INR60bn, the company confirmed to just-food.

We are open for inorganic ways to grow this business and open for opportunities in food space in India as well as internationally.”
