Comvita Limited (NZX: CVT ) is pleased to report record sales in the recent 618 shopping festival in China. The 618 festival is the second biggest of the year and Comvita reported sales improved by over 12% vs pcp, outperforming all other Mānuka honey brands on the two leading e-commerce platforms confirming their strong brand and market leadership in China. Comvita was the number one honey brand on Tmall, Tmall Global and Tmall Supermarket along with being number one in JD, Hema and TikTok. Comvita also made the Tmall Top 10 Brands in the healthy food category and was the leading international brand in this prestigious list, reflecting the fact that Comvita is being recognised more and more as a premium health and wellness lifestyle brand.
Commenting, David Banfield Group CEO said “I am so proud of our performance in China. Once again, the team have been able to deliver a standout result in the second most important shopping event in China. We believe that our unique premium and differentiated business model, and long-term strategy is continuing to build momentum and is further evidence of our ability to materially increase long-term household penetration and consumer loyalty in the China market”.
Comvita has a unique ‘End to End’ business model with around 350 people employed in markets outside of New Zealand to ensure that Comvita is better connected to customers and consumers in market and is able to adapt at speed to meet local market changes and needs.
Comvita retains its full year guidance as previously reported.
