Greencore Set To Consolidate Around Its Key Strengths: Analysis

While the year 2017 saw its fair share of ups and downs for convenience foods group Greencore, 2018 looks to be starting off on the front foot.

Earlier today, Greencore announced a 7.2% increase in pro forma revenue in the first quarter of its financial year, with sales of £640.5 million for the period.
