Bonduelle LFL sales recovered in Q2

French food group Bonduelle has booked higher half-year sales on the back of a "dynamic" second quarter.

Bonduelle, which saw like-for-like sales fall in its first quarter on lower revenue in Europe, reported a 2.2% increase in underlying sales to EUR979.3m (US$1.33bn) for the first half of its financial year. Like-for-like sales in the second quarter, which ran until 31 December, were up 5%.

In Europe, second-quarter like-for-like sales increased 1.2%. Half-year sales in the region, where Bonduelle makes two-thirds of its turnover, were down 0.2% but the company said marketing and innovation had boosted sales.

Outside Europe, half-year sales increased 8% on a like-for-like basis amid growth in Russia and South America.

Looking at Bonduelle's divisions, the company saw the strongest growth from its canned business, with sales up 3.5%.
