Company Battles Inflation, Foresees Margin Recovery
2023-Q4 Earnings Call

Company Battles Inflation, Foresees Margin Recovery

The company is navigating through significant commodity inflation, with cocoa and sugar prices experiencing low double-digit hikes, while other costs are rising at a mid-single digit pace, averaging out to a high single-digit increase. Gross margins have contracted by 200 basis points, but this is expected to be more pronounced in the first half of the year, mitigated by improved manufacturing cost savings and automation in the latter half.
