Robert Wiseman Dairies has
reported a 2% increase in sales volumes for the first
three months of its financial year despite admitting the
last few months had been ?among the most difficult we
have ever faced as a business?.
The company would need to increase prices to recover the
soaring cost of diesel, HDPE, electricity and gas, but
it was confident full-year results would be in line with
expectations, said chairman Alan Wiseman.
?We are confident that with a robust balance sheet, the
most modern and efficient network of dairies and
distribution centre in the UK, and the support of our
customers, we can rebuild margins back to acceptable
levels,? he added.
