Campari toasts growth in the coming months

ITALIAN drinks maker Campari expects business to improve gradually in the second half of this year after a regulatory change and one-off restructuring charges hit earnings in the first six months. The maker of the bitter red aperitif said developed markets, particularly in crisis-hit Europe, had either stabilised or improved. Nearly half of Campari’s sales of €698.6m (£605m) are generated in the Americas.
