Mineral water bottler Szentkirályi Ásványvíz had revenue of HUF 5.7 billion in 2009, about the same as in 2009, although sales volume inched up 3%, the company told MTI on Wednesday.
Pre-tax profit more than doubled in 2009 because of improved cost-efficiency.
Retail market share of Szentkirályi's two branded products - Szentkiralyi and Emese - climbed one-tenth of a percentage point to 10.6% in volume terms but rose 0.7 percentage point to 16.4% in value terms. Hungary's mineral water market was worth about HUF 47.5 billion in 2009, according to market research company ACNielsen. (MTI-Econews)
