Emmi eyes global expansion
Emmi, the Swiss dairy group, has set out its stall for 2009 - and its ambitions are increasingly international. Dean Best analyses the company's plans as it looks to milk markets outside Switzerland.
Swiss dairy group Emmi said it will “significantly” expand its international business in the next few years in a bid to bring foreign sales up to the level of Swiss sales.
A "solid" market performance and "rigorous" cost control boosted Swiss dairy group Emmi’s 2008 profit by 42.3%, the company said today (8 April).
Swiss dairy group Emmi is to buy a 60% stake in yoghurt and dessert maker Nutrifrais from Geneva-based LRG Group, gaining the licence for the Yoplait and TamTam brands.
