Belgian food group Ter Beke‘s shares fell following its third quarter trading update today (5 November).

Shares in the company were down 2.62% to EUR61.05 (US$86.19) at 11:36 CET after the company reported that turnover growth temporarily slowed during the summer, mainly in its ready meals division.

The company said that its new slicing and logistics centre in Wijchen, in the Netherlands, would be operational from November, and, slicing operations which took place in the factories in and around Milsbeek will be centralised on the new site.

The company is forecasting a net improvement of EUR1.3m for the full year, when compared to the previous year.
