Message from the CEOSvensk version
After a relatively weak first half of the year, the third quarter shows that we are on the right track. Earnings for the period were positive although underlying profit was down somewhat compared to the previous year.
Our primary focus in the second quarter was on the integration process and factory restructuring activities. During the period, high raw material costs continued to have a negative impact on earnings as implemented price adjustments have not yet had full effect.
The first quarter of the year was both rewarding and challenging. Rewarding since the merger between Cloetta and LEAF was successfully completed, and challenging mainly due to the soft market conditions and continued higher raw material costs.
Cloetta possesses some of the strongest consumer brands on the confectionery market. Virtually every consumer in the Nordic countries, the Netherlands or Italy recognises or has tried several of our products, many of which have a history dating back to the first half of the 20th century, or even before that.
