Campari sees positive sales growth

Published:  05 August, 2010

Drinks group Gruppo Campari saw a positive sales growth of more than 16% in the first half of 2010.

The groups net profit came in at €69.3m (£57.4m) up 15.2% on the previous year.

Chief executive officer, Bob Kunze-Concewitz, said whilst volatility might impact trading across coming quarters, he remains reasonably optimistic about full year prospects.

"Our performance in the first half of 2010 was very positive with significant growth across all key indicators. Looking forward to the remainder of the year, we have a balanced view of risks and opportunities. Specifically, our continued good consumption momentum across key brand and market combinations should help cushion the impact of tougher comps in terms of cost of goods and a weaker sales mix driven by seasonality."

Gruppo Campari has a portfolio of over 40 premium and super premium brands, marketed and distributed globally in over 90 countries.
