For the third quarter ending Sep-21, Nestle saw growth across all the major categories including food, beverages and confectionary categories. While the ecommerce channel of sales is building market share, the OOH or out of home channel has also got a boost as life returns to normalcy.

Nestle did take a hit on account of input costs spike. That was evident in operating profit growing by just 7.57% and the operating margins tapering from 22.38% in the Sep-20 quarter to 21.96% in the Sep-21 quarter. But a good part of the cost spikes have been passed on to the end customer via price hikes across product categories.

Nestle declared a second interim dividend of Rs.110 per share. The net profit margins at 15.90% were lower than 16.58% in Sep-20 quarter.
