In 2017 Yili achieved
increased sales and net profit due to the strong growth in its major products.
April 24, China’s dairy giant Yili published its 2017 financial report,
attributing its strong results to good performances in liquid dairy, formula
and ice cream. According to the report, the sales went up by 12.3% YoY and net
profit grew by 5.9% YoY.
positive financial result is mainly due to the success of its three major dairy
segments. Hereby, liquid dairy went up 12.6%, infant and adult formula up
17.8%, and ice cream business saw a growth of 9.8%.
to market intelligence firm CCM, Yili is far ahead of its peers in the liquid
dairy sector, and its infant formula sales also surpassed those of other
domestic infant formula producers and keep rising. The company gave a special
mention to its 38.9% rise in infant formula sales via mother & baby stores.

impressive performance recently. China’s listed dairy companies issued their
2017 financial reports successively in March and April. Besides Yili, other
market players like Mengniu and Bright Dairy achieved significant net profit
growth, whilst the upstream operators Modern Dairy, Shengmu, and Xinjiang
Western Animal Husbandry all ran at serious losses.
