Infant formula is a growing industry in China but, in recent years, it has not been without its problems. The 2008 melamine scandal, in which contaminated milk powder killed and sickened thousands of babies, rocked the sector - and damaged the reputation of some of the country's largest players. But, despite the promise of tougher regulation, the sector has still seen isolated incidents this year.
Synutra International, the Chinese infant formula manufacturer, has raised its full-year outlook having registered an increase in income from operations of more than 50% in the first half of the year.
Chinese infant formula group Synutra has raised its full-year earnings forecast after witnessing sales growth of "at least" 50% in the second quarter.
Chinese infant formula manufacturer Synutra has reported a jump in first-quarter profits, helped by higher selling prices and boosted by proceeds from a plant disposal.
Chinese infant nutrition firm Synutra International has been able to capitalise on the Beijing's production licence initiative, picking up distribution where other companies fail to gain a permit to manufacture.
Chinese infant formula company Synutra International attributed sequential growth in shipment volumes to increased marketing efforts.
