Our sales by region and by market in 2018


Mature markets

Representing 57% of our annual sales, mature markets such as North America, Western Europe and Japan are expected to experience slower growth than developing markets yet still offer potential for growth in areas such as the increase demand for health and wellness products.

High growth markets

Asia Pacific, Latin America and Eastern Europe, already account for 43% of our annual sales and this is expected to continue increasing year on year. Market growth is expected to be much higher due to urbanisation, changes in lifestyle and the increase in consumers’ disposable income. We have a dedicated presence with creation and production facilities in all key regions to fully capture this potential.
