Barry Callebaut Nine-Month Sales Advance on Gourmet Chocolate

Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s biggest maker of bulk chocolate, said it expects volume to accelerate after nine-month sales advanced 7.6 percent, fueled by production for food companies and growth in gourmet products.

Revenue climbed to 4.64 billion Swiss francs ($4.9 billion) in the period through May, the Zurich-based company said in a statement Wednesday. Analysts expected 4.65 billion francs, according to the median of estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Volume increased 2.5 percent even as the market shrank 2.1 percent.
