The company booked a 2.8% increase in revenue to EUR2.62bn (US$2.77bn) for the first nine months of its financial year, with sales from poultry in France up 3%.

LDC’s international poultry business reported a 4.8% fall in sales. Excluding the impact of exchange rates, sales rose 0.7%.

However, LDC also indicated it had seen international volumes fall 3.3% in the third quarter as it as moved away from less profitable business.

LDC’s third division – deli products – saw sales rose 5% during the nine-month period.
