Confectioner’s sweet reflections
Glisten, a fast-growing confectionery group making chocolate and sugar-based decorations, announced double turnover and good progress on current trading at its recent AGM.
Chairman, Jeremy Hamer, said “Glisten has had a very good start to the current year with overall turnover for the first four months more than double last year and, on a like-for-like basis, up by 13 per cent – both of which are in line with our expectations.
“We expect the second half to be underpinned by a number of new product and customer listings, as well as the further development of the sales potential from products acquired via the group’s recent acquisitions, Halo Foods and Nimbus Foods. In addition, the comprehensive capital expenditure programme outlined in our annual report is progressing as expected.
