Ingredients firm Tate & Lyle has reported a 18% increase in revenue and a 22% increase in EBITDA in its financial year to 31 March.
The group said that its profit performance was driven by 'mix management, pricing, productivity savings and cost discipline', which helped to offset inflation.
Profit for the year stood at £320 million (€368.2 million).
The group's Food & Beverage Solutions arm reported a 19% increase in revenue in the period, while profit in this division was 21% higher.
Elsewhere, its Sucralose business reported a 2% increase in revenue in the period, with EBITDA down 5% in this division.
“It has been an excellent first year for the new Tate & Lyle, with strong financial performance," commented Nick Hampton, chief executive.
"Our key financial measures were all met, with group revenue and adjusted EBITDA showing double-digit growth and productivity savings well ahead of target."
Elsewhere, Hampton praised the "strategic progress" made by the group, including the acquisition of a dietary fibre business in China and the recent brand relaunch, which was introduced in January.
