Texas-based poultry producer Pilgrim's Pride Corp has announced net income of US$1.3m, or US$0.03 per share, for the Q2 ended 30 March 2002, up US$11.1m year on year. The dramatic increase was due to the change in tax laws in Mexico, said David Van Hoose, CEO, president and COO, which bought a US$9.7m income tax benefit.
