Zara parent company profits despite soaring cotton prices


The company that owns the Zara retail chain appears to be profiting from its aggressive expansion into emerging markets such as China and India.

Maureen Hinton from Verdict says Inditex brands are better able than many to raise prices without losing too many sales.
