Total revenue from sales amounted to THB4,783 million, up by 18.7% YoY. Of which, revenue from 3rd party products for distribution amounted to THB1,417 million, up by 100.7% YoY, as a result of effective coverage through the cash van operations, coupled with continuous improvements in product selection and quality. Other revenue from sales amounted to THB257 million, up by 305.9% YoY, which was mainly derived from producing and selling glass bottles to outside parties. Such diversification came into play and offset slowdown in the sales of branded own products.

Raw materials and packaging materials used for the productions also hiked up in price, especially the market price for aluminum coils.
