Chocolate earnings climb 9 per cent for Kraft

8 Aug

Chocolate earnings climb 9 per cent for KraftKraft, in its second quarter results, reports continuing the challenges ahead for its gum and candy division lie in developed markets, and claims the Cadbury takeover is a fundamental earnings driver, with its global chocolate earnings up 9 per cent.

Net revenues for the food giant were $13.9bn, up 13.3 per cent. Kraft Foods North America posted earnings increase of 2.5 per cent while Kraft Foods Europe “continued to generate strong top- and bottom-line momentum in the quarter” to show a hike in revenues of 26.2 per cent.

Net revenues in developing markets jumped 22.3 per cent, added the Illinois based group.

Kraft CEO, Irene Rosenfeld, in a conference call on the results said the 6 per cent growth recorded for its global snacks division “is right in line “with the growth target of mid- to high-single digits target laid out last autumn.”

The global snacks business will not be independent of high-margin North American grocery business, following on from the decision announced by Kraft in tandem with posting its Q2 results, that it is splitting the company into separate entities.
