US: Corn costs hit crisp maker Golden
Soaring fuel and commodity costs pushed US crisp manufacturer Golden Enterprises into the red during the three months to 29 February.
The Golden Flake maker booked a net loss of US$26,790 during its fiscal third quarter, despite revenue rising 2% to $27.6m.
"Corn and cooking oil prices have increased dramatically over the past year as the demand for ethanol fuels have increased," the company said.
