Adani Wilmar, which markets edible oils and other food products under the Fortune brand, on Monday said it has opened 12 physical stores on franchisee model across six states and plans to start outlets across the country.

"Adani Wilmar is opening physical stores under the name Fortune Mart which will exclusively sell Fortune and other Adani Wilmar brand products," the company said in a statement.

The physical stores are being opened on a franchise model.

"Fortune has become a household name and the most popular and preferred food brand in the country. The rollout of Fortune Mart stores aims to leverage the brand equity Fortune has established over the last two decades," said Angshu Mallick, MD and CEO, Adani Wilmar.

The Fortune Mart stores will also supplement the company's wide retail reach, he added.
