Market and business trends in 2022
The past fiscal year was dominated by various challenges for Melitta Europe Coffee Preparation: these included cost hikes for raw materials and energy, which in some cases necessitated significant price increases for retailers. In addition, the market for filter coffeemakers and fully automatic coffee machines in particular suffered from falling demand.
High energy prices and inflation are likely to have a strong impact on the performance of Melitta Europe Coffee Preparation once again in 2023. Nevertheless, the division will continue to pursue its strategy with the aid of its “Indulgence Campaign”. Melitta Europe Coffee Preparation expects slight growth in its core markets. The markets for filter coffeemakers and fully automatic coffee machines in particular are expected to perform better than in the previous year.
