United Breweries reported a 20.4 percent jump in profit to Rs 147.06 crore on back of higher realization and sales. Net sales rose 8.6 percent to Rs 1,485.6 crore for the company in the first quarter.

Speaking to CNBC-TV18, Shekhar Ramamurthy, MD of the company said while April was a good month, May-July have been muted on back of early arrival of monsoon.

He expects volume growth for the industry to be at 5-6 percent for FY17, which the company will surpass.
