Its core Convenience Foods business posted revenue of £1.44 billion, up 6.6% on a like-for-like basis. Group operating profit was up 11.2% to £102 million.
“This has been another year of strong performance for Greencore, and these results should be seen as a clear indication that our strategy of focusing on the UK and US Convenience Foods markets is continuing to work well, commented Patrick Coveney, Greencore chief executive.
"In the UK, we have delivered substantial like-for-like growth against the backdrop of a challenging retail market and an uncertain economic environment, and in the US we now have a business that is primed to deliver sustainable, profitable growth."
