Nestle: Worrying start to 2004

Apr 30, 2004

Nestle India's March quarter numbers indicate signs of pressure building up in the domestic processed food industry. The company had ended FY04 on a strong note backed by buoyant domestic sales growth of nearly 12%. Bottomline growth was up nearly 31% during the year. In contrast, Nestle's March quarter (1QFY05) numbers reflect a toned down 5.5% domestic sales growth.
