Diageo sets full-year organic sales forecast, says not immune to trade changes

Sept 19 (Reuters) - Spirits maker Diageo Plc said on Thursday it was "not immune" to changes in global trade policies, but based on the current environment it expects to meet its full-year organic sales targets.

The Johnnie Walker whisky and Tanqueray Gin maker said it continues to expect organic net sales growth to be towards the mid-point of a 4% to 6% range and organic operating profit to grow roughly one percentage point ahead of organic net sales.
