The increase, the company said today (26 October), was driven by a Coca-Cola Co licensing agreement and supply chain productivity, offset by higher packaging and ingredient costs.

Operating profit in the period drop slightly, by 0.5% to $753m, while net sales increased by 5.2% to reach $4.44bn.

For the third-quarter, net profits climbed by 6.9% to $154m, while operating profits edged up by 0.4% to $261m. Sales in the period reached $1.53bn, a 4.8% increase on the prior-year period.

The company said it expects full-year net sales to increase by 3% to 5% and diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $2.70 to $2.78.
