The Q1 report also recorded positive sales growth for organic products, which was up +25% on a rolling 12-month basis.

The company has also kept a steady focus on auditing and monitoring working conditions at suppliers, as well as their environmental work. This focus addresses waste handling, chemicals and water treatment.
