New Delhi, Jul 11 (PTI) Global food and beverages major PepsiCo on Thursday reported a double-digit growth in beverages volume in India in the second quarter of the 2024 calendar year, thereby leading to a 2 per cent overall rise in Africa, Middle East & South Asia region.

The company also said its convenient foods unit volume grew double-digit in India in the April-June period.

"Beverage unit volume grew 2 per cent (in Africa, Middle East & South Asia - AMESA region), primarily reflecting double-digit growth in India, partially offset by a high-single-digit decline in Pakistan, a low-single-digit decline in the Middle East and a mid-single-digit decline in Nigeria," PepsiCo said in a regulatory filing.

Further, the company said its convenient foods unit volume grew 1 per cent in AMESA in the quarter, primarily reflecting double-digit growth in India and low-single digit growth in South Africa, partially offset by a double-digit decline in the Middle East and a low-single digit decline in Pakistan.

"For the second quarter, developing and emerging markets such as Egypt and Poland each delivered double-digit organic revenue growth, India and Brazil delivered high-single-digit growth, Thailand, and Pakistan each delivered mid-single-digit growth while Mexico and South Africa delivered low-single-digit growth," the company in its earnings statement.

International developed markets such as Australia and the UK each delivered low-single-digit organic revenue growth, it added.

"Year-to-date, we held or gained savory snack share in China, India, Brazil, Australia, and Pakistan, and for beverages, we held or gained share in Australia, South Korea, China, Thailand, Pakistan, Egypt, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, the UK and Brazil," the company added.
