Sales volumes were up by 2% to 133.6m unit cases, and prices rose 2.8% on average, compared to a year ago.

For the nine months of the year so far, Arca has seen operating income climb to MXN2.86m from 2.84m, with sales following suit, up to MXN13.9m from MXN13m. Net profit for the nine-month period slid, however, to MXN1.26m from MXN1.83.
