‘Sales volume continued to grow in key markets as a result of fully focused activities for our core brands in all segments, amid a recovery in foot traffic in Japan and continued demand growth overseas,” Noriaki Otsuka, Managing Executive Officer, Suntory Beverage & Food, said.

“Price revisions for PET bottle products in Japan from October last year and flexible price revisions overseas also contributed to revenue growth in all segments.”

Otsuka noted the company was impacted by cost increases driven by high prices of raw material and currency fluctuations.
