Britain's Hilton Food Group Says All Facilities Fully Operational

Hilton Food Group, the international food packing business, said on Wednesday that all of its facilities remain fully operational during the coronavirus outbreak.

The group, which has packing facilities in eight countries covering the UK, Europe and Australia, said it has established business continuity and flexible buy models and supply options, which may be tested during this period.

Though the firm has delayed publication of its annual results at the request of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), it said it had performed slightly ahead of the board's expectations.

Business Growth

Hilton posted strong year-on-year sales and volume growth, the company said in a statement. This was driven primarily by the business' operations in Australia and the UK.

'Hilton's trading outlook remains positive, with significant growth prospects underpinned by the previously announced expansion plans in Australia, in Central Europe (Fresh Food) and subsequently in New Zealand, as well as further opportunities arising from the move into fish via the Seachill acquisition and the roll-out of vegetarian products,' the company said in a trading update.
