Eroski Reports Lower Net Profit For 2022, Sales Rise

Spanish cooperative Eroski achieved a net profit of €63.9 million in 2022 (-39% year-on-year) and an operating profit of €204.0 million (+10%), the company said in a statement.

Gross sales for the year increased over 7% to €5.5 billion, boosted by higher pricing due to inflation (+12%).

The increase in the turnover of private label products (+7%) contributed significantly to sales, the group said, although sales volumes dropped 2%.

EBITDA exceeded €280 million as a result of the implementation of efficiency measures in all processes, it added, mitigating the effect of inflation on consumers, while the company's financial debt was reduced by €44 million to €909 million.
