WhiteWave Foods Reports Strong Second Quarter 2013 Results

Premium Dairy

In Premium Dairy, which includes Horizon Organic ® branded dairy products, volume growth drove net sales to increase 6 percent in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. Growth continues to be driven by single-serve and DHA Omega-3 products, as well as increases in core half-gallon offerings. The organic milk category grew by 4 percent during the second quarter, driven by Horizon Organic ®, which outpaced the category growth by 2 percentage points.

Coffee Creamers & Beverages

In Coffee Creamers and Beverages, which includes coffee creamers under the International Delight ® and LAND O LAKES ® brands, as well as International Delight Iced Coffee®, net sales increased 12 percent in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, due in part to strong growth in club stores, foodservice, convenience stores and other away-from-home channels. The refrigerated flavored creamer category grew 8 percent during the second quarter, driven by continued increases in coffee consumption and coffee flavoring trends.

The Company plans to build on its Coffee Creamers and Beverages platform with a new line of Green Mountain Coffee® branded iced latte. This iced coffee is packaged in a unique carafe shaped bottle for the coffee consumer interested in a stronger, great-tasting premium iced coffee option.

EUROPE SEGMENT

The Company’s Europe segment is comprised of its European Plant-based Foods and Beverages platform, which operates primarily under the Alpro ® name. Net sales in the segment increased 13 percent in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, on both a reported and constant currency basis. Operating income in the segment increased 12 percent to $8 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to the same period in 2012.
