The Group’s revenue was HK$1,024.4 million (2022: HK$1,061.8 million). Gross profit grew 8.8% YoY to HK$362.1 million (2022: HK$332.8 million). Gross profit margin increased significantly to 35.3% (2022: 31.3%), mainly attributable to the implementation of price adjustments and easing of raw material costs. Profit attributable to owners of the Company grew 22.3% to HK$110.5 million (2022: HK$90.3 million).
Revenue from the Hong Kong operations was HK$348.4 million (2022: HK$357.9 million). However, its sales outperformed the pre-pandemic level in 2019, indicating that the growth momentum continues upon resumption of normalcy in the region. As for the Mainland China operations, revenue of HK$676.0 million (in local currency: +3.3%) was recorded for the Reporting Period (2022: HK$703.9 million) due to the depreciation of the Renminbi against the Hong Kong dollar.
Mr Kiyotaka ANDO, Executive Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nissin Foods, said, “We are delighted to see that our business has recorded double-digit profit growth compared with pre-pandemic levels. This is a testament to the effectiveness of our premiumisation strategy, which has enabled sustaining growth when the market has returned to normal conditions. The consumer market remains competitive and challenging, and thus our outlook remains cautiously optimistic. Moving forward, we will continue to leverage our diversified product portfolio and develop various marketing strategies to boost sales performance, thereby enhancing our overall competitive strengths and creating long-term value for shareholders.”
