2017 Performance

Glanbia Performance Nutrition (‘GPN’) delivered a satisfactory result in the first half of 2017 in the context of challenging comparatives for the same period in 2016. Revenues increased 5.4% to €543.5 million. The key drivers of revenue growth was a 6.2% contribution from the combined acquisitions of Amazing Grass and Body & Fit offset by a 0.8% volume decrease as a result of contract revenue declines. Overall, year on year pricing was neutral on a comparative basis.
The integration of the Amazing Grass and Body & Fit acquisitions completed in the period is on track with targeted investment plans being developed to fuel growth.
