The wholesale, with its aim to make healthy leaving affordable, has rolled out Fine Life Bio with more than 120 products at very competitive prices in categories including rice, pulses, millets, dry fruits, flours, pulses, spices, sweeteners and sugar.
Arvind Mediratta, the MD & CEO of Metro Cash and Carry, India was reported saying that consumers as of today are increasingly becoming conscious about their overall well-being and what they eat. He further added that organic products have been gaining immense traction but has limited acceptance among the masses given its premium pricing ranges.
