Although sales were flat at around €76m, operating profit climbed 71% to €3.29m.
The company’s cocoa and chocolate business was the key driver with operating profit in this segment up 48% to €1.67m.
This was achieved mainly through pricing after the general increase of raw material costs last year.
Natra also boosted sales for its cocoa and chocolate business in developing markets, with China and Brazil the highlights.
Sales in the firm’s home market, Spain, however, declined 11%.
