Nestle India Q2 net profit up 11 pc to Rs 539 crore

New Delhi: FMCG major Nestle India on Wednesday reported 11 percent year-on-year rise in its net profit to Rs 539 crore for the quarter ended June. The company’s revenue from operations rose 14 percent to Rs 3,462 crore in the April to June quarter. The company follows a January to December financial year. During the quarter, the company’s domestic sales grew 13.7 percent on-year. Domestic and export sales achieved double-digit growth largely driven by volume and product mix.

“Our efforts to ensure last-mile access were aided by e-commerce and in particular hyperlocal (quick commerce) channels, which grew by 147 percent in the first half of this year,” said Chairman and Managing Director Suresh Narayanan.

Last year, Nestle India had decided to invest Rs 2,600 crore over a three to four-year period. Of this, it has already invested Rs 1,000 crore so far. “This is a vindication of our confidence and trust in the Nestle journey in India.”
