Medellin-based multinational foods giant Grupo Nutresa reported February 24 a 17.6% year-on-year hike in full-year 2021 net income, hitting COP$676 billion (US$172 million).

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) likewise rose 6.2% year-on-year, to COP$1.37 trillion (US$349 million), from COP$1.3 trillion (US$331 million) in 2020.

Gross revenues rose 14.5%, to COP$12.74 trillion (US$3.2 billion), from COP$11.1 trillion (US$2.8 billion) in 2021.

Colombia accounted for 61% of total corporate revenue, at COP$7.8 trillion (US$1.98 billion), “16.3% higher than the previous year. This growth was driven by outstanding business dynamics across all business units,” according to Nutresa.

“International sales measured in Colombian pesos amounted to COP$4.9 trillion, 11.8% higher than the sales achieved in 2020, representing 38.9% of the total revenue. When stated in dollars, these sales amount to US$1.3 billion, which represents a growth of 10.2%,” the company added.

Gross margins dipped 1.6% year-on-year, “the result of the increase in raw materials related to the global challenges in logistics and the commodities super-cycle,” according to Nutresa.

Operating profit rose 8.4% year-on-year, to COP$1.1 trillion (US$280 million), “the result of productivity measures during the period. Because of this strategy, selling expenses decreased 260 basis points over the past two years,” according to Nutresa.

“Net post-operative expenses totaled COP$117.8 billion [US$30 million], decreasing 42.3% when compared to 2020. This is mainly explained by a notable reduction in the financial expenses due to lower interest rates throughout the year,” the company added.
