KREMI-MAKER Caribbean Cream has hiked its inventory by $22.3 million in anticipation of increased sales over the next quarter.
The company in its third quarter financial report ending November said it increased its inventory by 22 per cent to position itself to meet the required demand for the Christmas season. The rise in inventory comes amid negative cash flows at the fast-rising ice cream company.
Kremi, however, managed to squeeze a 19 per cent increase in net profit for the quarter, moving from $11.1 million in 2013 to $13.3 million. “The increase was aided by the continued growth of our retail line of ice cream products along with strong sales both in novelty items and the bulk market segment,” chief executive officer Christopher Clarke stated in the report.
