6 October 2011 – trading statement

Following the disappointing trading statement covering the three months to 30 June, food group Cranswick has updated the market on trading for the second quarter of the financial year to 30 September.  This has been in line with expectations, with increased sales in both the UK and overseas helped by the growing popularity of pork products.  The group has also been successful in winning contracts to supply sandwiches to two major grocery retailers.  The board remains confident in its long term future and we share that sentiment – BU.Y
