Charles Héaulmé, President and CEO

"We are pleased to deliver further net sales growth, beyond pre-COVID pandemic levels, and improved profitability while continuing to face a very challenging cost environment. Overall demand has supported growth. The global progress of vaccinations and removal of social mobility restrictions has benefited food on-the-go which has continued to gradually recover. However, the global food packaging market remains volatile with significant challenges in many countries still heavily impacted by the pandemic. This volatility is also evident in the supply chain with significant inflation in the prices of raw materials, especially polymers and recycled fiber.

Altogether our second quarter results were strong although with mixed performance across the different regions and businesses. Net sales increased 10%, amounting to EUR 877 million, reflecting the improved demand for foodservice packaging. Comparable net sales growth was 14%. This strong growth should be contextualized versus a depressed comparable period in 2020. Net sales for the first half of 2021 increased 2%, and 6% in comparable terms. The adjusted EBIT margin improved 0.3 p.p. to 9.1% in the second quarter and reached 9.3% in the first half of 2021. This was supported by a continued focus on operational efficiency and pricing actions to mitigate input cost inflation.

Huhtamaki's robust performance supports investments for long-term sustainable growth. We continue to leverage our strong balance sheet to execute on our growth strategy. In May, we announced an investment in a new fiber packaging factory in South Africa. Our most recent acquisition, the asset purchase of the Chinese Jiangsu Hihio-Art Packaging, was completed in June. These strategic initiatives, together with investments announced in new manufacturing facilities in both Malaysia and Russia, strengthen our global manufacturing footprint and provide us with great opportunities to better serve both existing and new customers. We have also recently launched new products which further help plastic substitution in targeted markets. Our sustained innovation, our continued focus on operational efficiencies, with the support of our resilient business model, strong balance sheet and skilled employee base give me confidence that we face a bright perspective in terms of sustainable profitable growth."
