Finance expenses remained flat at NIS68m, while cash flow from regular activity totalled NIS241m, compared with a negative cash flow of NIS76m in the corresponding period last year.

Operating profit totalled NIS293m, and increase of 20.4% on 2011, which the company attributed to operating profit growth in its Sabra dips division and an improvement in the operating earnings of its coffee division.
