2017 Performance

Glanbia Performance Nutrition (‘GPN’) delivered a satisfactory result in the first half of 2017 in the context of challenging comparatives for the same period in 2016. Revenues increased 5.4% to €543.5 million. The key drivers of revenue growth was a 6.2% contribution from the combined acquisitions of Amazing Grass and Body & Fit offset by a 0.8% volume decrease as a result of contract revenue declines. Overall, year on year pricing was neutral on a comparative basis.
The integration of the Amazing Grass and Body & Fit acquisitions completed in the period is on track with targeted investment plans being developed to fuel growth. Amazing Grass via its portfolio of plant based, organic and GMO free nutrition products participates in a high growth category and further expands GPN’s reach with lifestyle consumers in the natural, online and specialty channels in North America. Body & Fit provides GPN with a presence in the European direct to consumer online channel.


The global performance nutrition market, at retail selling price, is approximately $10.1 billion with the USA accounting for 63%, and other international markets accounting for 37%. We estimate our global market share in terms of branded revenue is in the region of 12%. All regions continue to exhibit good growth, sustaining the positive momentum of recent years. There are stronger growth rates in the less mature markets, where per capita consumption of sports nutrition products continues to grow off a low base. Globally, powders are the single biggest sports nutrition format and are our core format offering. We are also continuing to broaden our range into Ready-to-Drink (RTD) beverages, bars and supplements. Energy is one of the fastest growing categories while protein is a gateway product into performance nutrition usage. Protein is the largest category with statistically four out of ten people striving to include more protein in their diets.

While GPN’s footprint is in the USA, we have invested significantly in recent years to expand our international presence. GPN has an unrivalled global infrastructure with 1.3 million square feet of facilities, over 1,600 people worldwide, an in-market presence in 23 countries worldwide and products available in over 100 countries.
