Increase in sales directly influenced company’s profits which during the third quarter of 2011 reached the best level so far of 1.8 million lats (2.6 million euros). The profit of 9 months period was 5 million lats (7.1 million euros).
Increase in sales volumes of AS “Olainfarm” was achieved by strengthening company’s sales in Latvia and the key export markets, like Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. AS “Olainfarm” has also managed to significantly increase its sales to some markets were the sales historically were not as good, for instance to Canada and the Netherlands, where the sales have grown 50 and 10 times respectively.
„Nine months sales results show the strength of Olainfarm’s product portfolio and the good equilibrium of sales markets. At least ten strong products can meet demands of different markets and “Olainfarm” proved to be able to dynamically react on new demands, which is where our success stories in Canadian and Dutch sales are coming from,“ says Salvis Lapins, Member of Olainfarm’s Board.
