Pork producer Cranswick said underlying sales were 12pc higher in the year to March 31 after the Norfolk and Hull-based firm benefited from strong growth across most product categories, particularly fresh pork, bacon and cooked meats.

Export sales were well ahead of the levels reported in the previous financial year, reflecting robust demand for pork products in Far Eastern markets.

The EDP Top100 group invested in excess of £20m in its infrastructure during the year ended 31 March 2014, allowing it to further improve operational efficiencies and to launch new product ranges.
