FMCG company Godrej Consumer Products Ltd. (GCPL) is expanding its hand hygiene brand Protekt into a home, kitchen and personal care brand. This is at a time when covid-19 is rapidly expanding  usage of hygiene products in the Indian homes. Over ten new products including a dish wash liquid, surface disinfectant spray, a fruit and vegetable wash, soaps, masks, surface and skin anti-bacterial wipes have been introduced under Protekt.  Speaking to newsmen , Sunil Kataria, CEO, India and SAARC, said “Indians are now looking at overall hygiene landscape very differently.

Not just in terms of hand washing but all aspects of hygiene.” He added in recent studies by market researchers, 91% more Indian households are washing hands more often. Referring to sanitizers , he said the pandemic is also spurring growth of categories which were never big in this country.
