The Group recorded revenue of HK$2,956.0 million for the Reporting Period.

Revenue from Hong Kong and other Asian operations was HK$1,142.1 million. As for the Mainland China operation, due to the depreciation of the Renminbi against the Hong Kong dollar, revenue of HK$1,813.9 million (in local currency: -0.2%) was recorded for the Reporting Period.
Mr Kiyotaka ANDO, Executive Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nissin Foods, said, “We are pleased to have achieved double-digit profit growth amidst the challenging business landscape. During the Reporting Period, the Group continued to implement its strategy of cost control and price adjustment, with the aim of maintaining stable business performance. In view of the uncertain macro environment and economy, we anticipate that the consumer market will remain intense, and therefore we remain cautiously optimistic about the future outlook. Nissin Foods will continue to strengthen its overall competitiveness through a well-diversified product portfolio and premiumisation strategy, while increasing brand recognition in the regions in which it operates, in order to create long-term value for our customers and shareholders.”
