The world's largest instant noodle maker, Indofood, has forecast a minimum 10% rise in sales and operating profit this year. Last year Indofood posted total sales of 16.5trn rupiah (US$2.0bn), up from 14.6trn in 2001. Indofood president Eva Riyanti Hutapea said a stronger rupiah and falling domestic inflation should underpin demand for the company's products, reported Reuters.
