Compaña de Cervecerias Unidas (CCU) has reported a 9.3% rise in third quarter sales volumes, compared to the same period last year, to 9.2m hectolitres.

The Chilean drinks producer, part owned by Heineken, saw domestic sales jump by 10% on the corresponding period a year earlier to 7.6m hectolitres, driven by nectars (up 21.6%), beer (up 15.4%) and mineral waters (up 12.2%).

These gains compensated for a poorer quarter in wine, where domestic sales fell 11.2% and Chilean wine exports fell 3.4%.

The company's Argentine operations, meanwhile, were up 6.3% to 1.6m hectolitres.
