MUMBAI: Hindustan UnileverBSE 0.01 %'s subsidiary Pond's Exports (PEL) that manufactures leather products, has entered into an agreement with Hindustan Foods for sale of certain movable assets and inventory as part of the company's strategy to exit non-core businesses.

According to the company’s annual report the leather business had a rough year, due to challenging economic conditions in main market, Europe and further pushed down by a weaker Euro.
