Unilever's Indian subsidiary, Hindustan Lever Limited (HLL), is the country's largest fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) company. Since the early 2000s, HLL has been finding growth difficult to come by. In the wake of these problems, HLL has announced a major management and operational restructuring exercise. The question uppermost in the minds of analysts is whether this restructuring will help HLL turn things around in its favour and it can return to the heady days of the mid-1990s, when double digit growth had come so easily.
