Cranswick Bringing Home The Bacon

Hull-based pork specialist Cranswick say that first half sales rose by 19%, buoyed by the group’s acquisition of pork farmer Bowes of Norfolk earlier this year.

The group cited the continuing popularity of pork over other types of meat as like-for-like sales rose by 12%, producing a 15% rise in profits for the six months to October.

I reckon my own personal bacon consumption alone accounts for around half of that.

Detailed interim figures will be released on November 16.
