CEO statement

Christophe Barnouin (CEO) commented: "2015 was a good year for us. 250  years after the company was founded we managed to outgrow a strongly growing market with most of our own brands and delivered overall autonomous growth of 9.4%.  We significantly invested in building stronger brands yet delivered a 47% increase of EBITE for the year. The integration of Abafoods is progressing very well. Our efforts to upgrade our operations are bearing fruit and we are sharpening our profile as one of very few fully focussed, listed companies in healthy and sustainable food.
A food revolution is underway as people switch from "Big Food" to healthier, more sustainable alternatives. We have only just seen the beginning of a long term trend and we are in a unique position to contribute to its development."
