The French drinks company Belvedere saw its half year turnover increase 58.9% compared to the same period last year to €106.8m.
 
The increase was attributed to the integration of Polish vodka producer Starogard Gdanski and Alco Pegro in the group's results.

Full financial results for the first half of 2002 will be published on October 15, 2002.
