Tata Coffee reported a consolidated net profit of Rs 39.40 crore in the March quarter compared to Rs 16.32 crore in the corresponding quarter of previous fiscal on account of higher sales.
Total income of the company surged over 13 per cent to Rs 450 crore against Rs 397 crore in the previous financial year.
"The primary reason for the above mentioned growth in profits was superior performance in the Coffee Plantation business and in Value added products driven by the results of the company's US operating subsidiary, Eight O'Clock Coffee," Tata Coffee executive director(finance) and CFO K Venkataramanan said.
The total Income for the quarter, for Eight O' Clock Coffee, stood at $40 million compared to $36 million for the corresponding quarter of the previous year, Mr Venkataramanan added.
