Hilton Food H1 Adj. Operating Profit Rises - Quick Facts

Hilton Food Group plc (HFG.L) said it delivered both volume and profit growth for the first half period. Revenue rose by 35.3% underpinned by volume growth of 10.5%.

Adjusted earnings per share increased to 31.9 pence from 25.6 pence.

Revenue from continuing operations increased to 1.71 billion pounds from 1.26 billion pounds, last year.

The Board has approved the payment of an interim dividend of 8.2 pence per ordinary share. The interim dividend will be paid on 3 December 2021 to shareholders on the register at close of business on 5 November 2021.
