The domestic business delivered a far more broad-based growth with visibly positive results in the portfolio diversification journey, while the international business continued to reinforce its underlying strength amidst a challenging operating environment. As we move into next year, we expect the pace of growth in volumes, revenues and earnings to move in the right direction, aided by an evolving portfolio of entrenched and budding franchises, distribution expansion and adequate investments in market development and brand building.”
