Bonduelle has released its results for the opening quarter of business year, covering the period from 1 July to 30 September 2019, with revenue up 0.3 per cent year on year based on reported figures.

Total consolidated revenue stood at €684.3m Bonduelle said, up from €682.1m last year, although on a like-for-like basis revenue fell 1.4 per cent.

The group enjoyed a good performance in Europe and faster growth outside Europe for the canned and frozen operating segments through the quarter.

However, the group said its fresh business activities were affected by the carry-over of the difficulties recorded in 2018/19, with a decrease in revenue due, in particular, to a weaker performance for the fresh segment in Germany.
