• Net profit climbs to THB1.83bn
  • Net sales up 12.9%

Seafood giant Thai Union Frozen Products has booked an increase in third-quarter net profit thanks to higher tuna sales and lower interest costs.

In the three months to the end of September, earnings amounted to THB1.83bn (US$59.7m) compared to THB1.82bn last year. The company said the results reflect "strong business operations" and "steady growth" of each business unit, particularly tuna and sardine/mackerel products.

Sales in the period reached BHT28.33bn, a 12.9% increase on last year.
