“The general economic environment and fluctuating commodity markets continue to be challenging, but I am pleased by the improvement in both top line growth and bottom line performance for the third consecutive year.” “By working closely with our customers, delivering service excellence and significantly enhancing our product offer we have looked after the consumer and weathered the commodity storm well, while generating the profitability essential for continued long term investment.”Faccenda is investing in a new processing facility at its Telford site, following significant investment in its factory operations at Brackley and the acquisition of Cranberry Foods Ltd in 2012. While the results of the turkey business are not yet integrated into the Faccenda results, Mr. Dawkins was quick to highlight its excellent performance.
“The Cranberry operation continues to deliver strong results while also creating a diverse and complementary product mix for our overall food operations.”Looking forward Mr. Dawkins commented:
“Our strategy of supply excellence, product innovation and trusted delivery has continued to pay dividends for our customers. However, in order to continue to sustain our improved performance we are committed to long term investment in the UK agriculture and manufacturing sectors, but most of all our people, who we firmly believe are the key to our long term success as a business.” “Whilst overall we are pleased with these results, we are confident that we have the right strategy and people to build on our strong foundations and produce further improvements in year ahead.”
