Reliance Industries Shares Continue Slump: Here's What Going On

Shares of Reliance Industries continued to slump on Friday as announcements made by its subsidiaries seem to have failed to cheer investors.

What Happened: The company’s subsidiary Reliance Consumer Products (RCPL) announced the launch of the iconic soft drink brand Campa. The company bought the brand last year in August from Pure Drinks.

The company said that it will start out with three flavours Campa Cola, Campa Lemon, and Campa Orange.  The FMCG company plans to roll out the drinks across the country starting from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The launch puts the Mukesh Ambani led-group in competition with global soft drinks giants Coca Cola and Pepsi.
