Carr's Milling Industries plc: Positive Trading Update

Carr's, the fully-listed agriculture, food and engineering group, announced its Interim Results for the six months to 1 March 2008 on 7th April 2008. The Interim Results were substantially ahead of the comparable period of the 26 weeks to 3 March 2007 and appreciably ahead of budget, it says.

Since 7th April, the Company has continued to enjoy strong trading in the UK and USA, particularly in its agricultural division, including its oil distribution business, and now expects profits before tax for the year ending 30 August 2008 will be in excess of £8.6 million (2007: £5.5 million), the statement reads. The Company says it will provide a further update in its Interim Management Statement, which it expects to make in late June.
