Yili also reported a 7.7-percent year-on-year growth in net profit attributable to shareholders of the company last year, which reached 6.9 billion yuan.
The company raked in 20.7 billion yuan in the first three months of this year, with a net profit of 1.2 billion yuan, according to its Q1 financial report released on the same day.
