Our profit after tax was, however, negatively impacted by the recent devaluation 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.“
