AUSTRALIA: SPC seeking international acquisitions, posts strong net profits
Fruit canner and marketer SPC Ltd hopes to hike the percentage of overall revenues generated overseas from 30% to 50% within the next three years. The announcement came as the group unveiled a 10.9% increase in net profits to A$9.52m for the last financial year.
