Our profit after tax was, however, negatively impacted by the recent devalaution of the Naira, which necessitated the revaluation of our foreign currency obligations.

 

Going into the second half of the year, we will continue to focus on optimising our operations to ensure the availability and accessibility of the nutritious food and beverages our loyal customers expect from us.“
