UK-based chilled foods company Uniq has said the organic growth of sales for the first quarter of its fiscal year is more than 10% ahead of the same period last year, helped by currency movements and the timing of Easter. Speaking at Uniq's AGM, chairman Nigel Stapleton said that adjusting for the impact of currency and Easter, sales were up 5%, which was a "considerable improvement" on last year when there was a slight underlying decline.
