- Coca-Cola HBC, a leading bottler of the brands of The Coca-Cola Company, saw continued growth in the third quarter.

The group said it had an excellent revenue performance, with FX-neutral revenue growth of 6.0%.

The group said established markets segment volume increased by 2.2% driven by southern European countries and supported by good weather and the developing markets segment volume increased by 5.1%, with particularly strong growth in Hungary and the Czech Republic and stabilisation in Poland.

Acting chief executive and group chief financial officer Michalis Imellos said: 'We are very pleased with the strong revenue delivery in the quarter, well balanced between broad-based volume growth and substantial price/mix improvement.

'We go into the final quarter encouraged by our progress and confident in delivering on our expectations for the full year.'
