This also means that Yili has further expanded its leading edge as the industry leader. Under the impact of the epidemic, the Matthew effect of “the stronger the stronger” in the food and beverage industry seems to be more obvious because large companies have stronger ability to resist risks.

Let’s focus on the liquid milk business first. This category accounts for the majority of Yili’s revenue and is the basic indicator of the company’s performance.

In the subsequent reply session, Qiu Xiangmin, Secretary of Yili’s board of directors, added that about 20% of Yili’s normal temperature liquid milk was sold in the first and second tier cities, and 80% in the offline cities. “(in the first half of the year), cities such as Shanghai and Beijing have relatively small impact due to the response measures such as supply guarantee and group purchase. However, in other regions, especially some offline cities, the overall impact of the epidemic may be greater. On the one hand, it is because of the strict prevention and control measures, and on the other hand, it is also because the residents’ demand for dairy products is weaker than that of the first tier cities.” He said.
He said that from the perspective of time, the impact of the epidemic in April this year was the greatest, mainly because the logistics supply side was limited by the prevention and control policies of various places. It began to improve gradually from May to June. “In the second half of the year, the sales in July also improved, but it may take some time to fully recover.”
“In the first half of the year, our white milk increased

“Looking forward to the whole year, the goal of Yili milk powder business is to achieve at least 20% growth, and the growth of infant milk powder will be faster. Now, we have made great breakthroughs in market share, and in the longer term, we will still work towards the first goal. In the future, we hope to continue to make efforts through product formula upgrading, maternal and infant channels, and member marketing improvement, so as to win more consumers’ favor and integrate more Market share. ” Zhao Lin said.
When asked about the synergy advantages of Yili holding Aoyou at the meeting, she said that the two sides had made some progress in supply chain production, channels and other aspects through the initial “100 day coordination plan” and sorting out the coordination points. In the future, on the premise of maintaining the independent operation of both sides, they will seek more cooperation in operation management, including product sorting, brand building and channel layout.

“In the first half of the year, our cheese revenue increased by more than 40%. According to Nielsen’s data, the market share of retail sales increased by nearly 4% year-on-year and has become the second in the industry.” Zhao Lin said that Yili’s
Previously, in 2018, this dairy giant set up a cheese business department to distribute goods through the liquid milk advantage channel network, rapidly sinking, and leaping to the second place in the industry market share within three years. “Relying on the strong R & D capability of the company, we will continue to understand the industry trend and launch corresponding products to help the cheese business grow continuously and rapidly in the next few years.” Zhao Lin said.
