Tingyi Holding Corp's beverage unit has reported a healthy rise in first-half sales but profits fell as it cycled a one-off gain from last year's tie-up with PepsiCo

Net profits from beverages in the six months to the end of June dropped by 67.4% to US$87.5m, the Tianjin, China, headquartered group reported yesterday (26 August). Net sales in the period rose by 29.7% to $3.25bn, while pre-tax profits in the unit dropped by 58% to $133.8m.

Last year, the company benefited in its first half from a tie-up with PepsiCo. The US group took a 5% stake in Tingyi while selling its bottling operations to the Chinese firm.

The healthy rise in sales was due to growth from RTD tea and sales from Pepsi's bottling business, which is now 60% of the group's turnover. 

Volumes of Pepsi beverages saw “double-digit growth”, the company said. 

Tingyi's H1 group net profits, whose business also includes instant noodles, fell by 31.4% to $196.7m, while sales were up by 19.6% to $5.4bn.

Looking ahead to the second-half, the company said overall operations will remain “challenging” due to the state of China's economy.
