The increase in profit for the period and net profit margin was mainly attributable to an increase in total income and gross profit margin as well as more efficient cost control due to the benefits from economy of scale following an increase in sales volume.

1) Higher revenue in agro business was mainly due to an increase in prices of feed products following the rising cost of raw materials; 

2) Higher revenue in food and protein business was mainly attributable to the rise in prices of pork, chicken, egg, processed food and processed meat products, following domestic and export market prices as well as sales volume growth from increasing demand; 

3) Higher revenue in international business was mainly due to an increase in prices of feed products following the rising cost of raw materials as well as an increase in livestock prices in Cambodia and Laos; 

4) Higher revenue in pet business was mainly due to an increase in sales volume and selling prices of pet food that corresponded with an increase in production volume and revenue share from the sales of higher-priced products following the company’s business strategy to shift towards higher profitability products.
