The company said it succeeded in increasing its operating revenue through additional bottling contracts and favourable product mix.

Furthermore, the 40% increase in net earnings for the six months ended February 29, 2004 was mainly due to a C$4.4m increase in the equity earnings from the investment in the Tia Maria Group.
