Full-Year Results Fiscal Year 2013/14: Barry Callebaut significantly grows volume and profit

Nov 06, 2014

Juergen Steinemann, CEO of the Barry Callebaut Group, said: “We achieved another record year, both top and bottom-line.  Our sales volume was boosted by the acquired cocoa business, and further supported by our three growth drivers – emerging markets, Gourmet and strategic partnerships. With 2.9% volume growth on a stand-alone basis, we grew faster than the global chocolate market. Over the last two years we have increased our focus on margin improvement. This has paid off, with EBIT and net profit growing at a double-digit rate. I am very pleased with the successful global integration of the acquired cocoa business as well as its profit contribution already in the first year.”
