Speaking on the occasion Mr. C.K. Kumaravel, CEO & Co-Founder, Naturalssaid, “When we entered into the salon industry back in 2000, the biggest challenge that we came across was the unavailability of trained beauty & hair professionals and unfortunately even today we see a gap. I believe that our partnership with Godrej will not only help us to achieve our goals but will also benefit the industry demand for professional talent”. Mr. Kayomarz D Dotiwalla, Associate VP, Good & Green, Godrej Consumer Products Limited on this occasion added, “Together with Naturals we hope to reach our goal to train and equip youth with skills that will enhance their income earning potential in the salon industry”.
