Aryzta, the baking group created through the merger of IAWS and Hiestand, has confirmed that it is looking to build sales momentum, which could potentially be achieved through acquisitions.

"We are naturally working to increase sales and drive profitable growth. We have previously stated that we intend to double our profits over the next four years… Part of our strategy going forward could include strategic acquisitions," a spokesperson for the group told just-food today (9 June).

However, Aryzta does not currently have any acquisitions "on the cards".

"It would need to be the right deal," the spokesperson added.
