Gross margins grew by 3.2% compared to the first nine months of 2001, made possible by the lower cost of raw milk and economies of scale. At the same time, there has been an anticipated growth in sales and distribution expenses.

Sales in Wimm-Bill-Dann’s dairy segment grew by 14.0% from $356.8m in first nine months of 2001 to $406.6m in the first nine months of 2002, which is primarily due to an enhanced regional presence along with natural growth of the segment, mostly through volume growth.

Sales in Wimm-Bill-Dann’s juice segment increased 36.9% from $135.7m in the first nine months of 2001 to $185.7m in the first nine months of 2002, primarily as a result of sales volume increases.
