by swisschambei in Hospitality / Tourism / Retail

Mark Schneider, Nestlé CEO, commented: “In the first half of the year, we delivered strong organic growth and a significant increase in underlying earnings per share. Our local teams implemented price increases in a responsible manner. Volume and product mix were resilient, based on our strong brands, differentiated offerings and leading market positions. We limited the impact of unprecedented inflationary pressures and supply chain constraints on our margin development through disciplined cost control and operational efficiencies. At the same time, investments behind capital expenditure, digitalization and sustainability increased significantly. We are focused on creating shared value over both the short and long term. Growing food insecurity around the world and heightened climate concerns, following an increase in unusual weather patterns, underlines the importance of this strategic direction. Good for you and good for the planet are the two key strategic pillars that our company pursues in an unwavering manner, even in the face of significant short-term challenges.” Regarding Zone Greater China, Organic growth was 2.3%, with RIG of 1.6%. Pricing reached 0.7%, turning positive in the second quarter. Foreign exchange had a positive impact of 3.8%. Reported sales in Zone Greater China increased by 6.0% to CHF 2.7 billion. Zone Greater China reported low single-digit organic growth, impacted by COVID-19-related movement restrictions. Growth was supported by robust demand in e-commerce channels and continued innovation.
