The Portuguese company, which is the world's largest wine closure producer, said last week that last year's net profits jumped by 23% on 2010, coming in at EUR25.3m (US$33.3m). Net sales followed suit, rising by 8% to EUR494.8m, with EBITDA increasing by 9.7% to EUR72.4m.

Amorim said that it saw growth in both volumes and value across all types of corks that it produces in 2011. Indeed, Amorim credited its cork stoppers business unit as being "the principal contributory factor" to its full-year performance.

"It all points to the fact that natural cork stoppers shall have gained market share in 2011, as also happened in 2010," the company claimed.

For the final quarter of last year, net profits soared by 37% to EUR3.8m, with sales picking up by 4.8% year-on-year, totalling EUR114.7m.
