I remember this company for their Dairy products. When I was in Hyderabad, every morning I used to get fresh milk of Heritage from a nearby outlet. And now owning shares of their company feels really satisfying to me.
Heritage Foods was founded in 1992. It is headquartered in Hyderabad, India. They produce a variety of dairy products like fresh milk, buttermilk, paneer, ice cream, curd, etc. They have around 1,400 outlets and they also export dairy products to various parts of the world. You can find all their products on their official website here -> Heritage Website
They also have a Renewable Energy division which includes 11 different solar and wind power plants located in the states of Telangana, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu.

The company is consistently decreasing its liabilities and the overall financial outlook is positive.
The stock is currently moving above it’s 50 and 200 moving average. I can also see the stock is making a Ascending Triangle pattern which can be referred from the below image.
The previous recent high of the stock is at Rs 405 which was in February 2020. The current level of stocks is Rs 400 and is almost at the same position. Once the triangle breaks, we can see a good momentum in the stock price and can expect it to reach around Rs 500-Rs 600 within a few months.
The all time high of the stock is at Rs 884 during 2017. The current financial outlook looks better than it was in 2017. We can expect a good appreciation from here.
