Dabur, which is known for its ayurveda and ayurvedic products, is also seeking to tap the same young consumers for the natural range of products.
Burman said that millennial consumers are embracing modern trends, habits and lifestyles, they are also increasingly going back to their roots and taking pride in tradition and are today more comfortable with their Indianness.

Burman said, "To tap these opportunities, Dabur strengthened its health care portfolio by introducing several time-tested ayurvedic remedies in modern day formats to cater to the new generation."
On the new categories front, the company said the objective will be to exploit new opportunities around these areas while continuing to build existing brands and businesses.
