Chellarams announced last June that it had entered into a new strategic joint-venture agreement with its long-time business partner, German-based dairy producer, DMK Limited to form a new venture called Chellarams-DMK Limited, with the purpose of producing and marketing Chellaram’s dairy brands in Nigeria instead of importation.

The firm’s sales have suffered due to rising raw materials dollar-denominated costs, stiff competition in the dairy business and high administrative costs. The company noted in its financial report that it had discontinued its dollar-denominated term loans and entered into new loan agreements denominated in Naira.

Chellarams said that its entire group pre-tax profit fell by 53% to ₦269m for the year, from ₦568m in the previous year. Net profit for the group stood at ₦201m versus ₦334m in 2017. The FMCG segment recorded a pre-tax loss of ₦400m, while the Ingredient segment posted a pre-tax profit of ₦144m.
