    Personal care segment continues to lead the market in both Urban and Rural with two digits growth year on year.

  3. Cup noodle shows excellent growth in Urban, especially in expanding into more consumers, with more than 2.5 million households recruited in the latest 3 months versus year ago.

    This buyer incremental successfully lifted the total value of instant noodle by more than 50%.

  4. All key channels have seen positive sign of growth in this period. Minimarket grows by two-digits this period and even the bigger channel format like hyper-supermarket also enjoy the positive trend.

    Traditional trade is also increasing in both urban and rural. Suggesting that this trade channel is still dominating the market in Indonesia.
