“While pork prices remained stable, a glut in poultry supply led to a slowdown for the poultry and meats business, the company said.

Higher flour sales volume and additional revenue from the company’s new grain terminal resulted in a 6-percent growth in revenue for the flour milling business, the company added.

Combined revenues for the branded and value-added businesses grew by 11 percent, led by core brands Purefoods, Magnolia, Star and Dari Crème. The processed meats business, in particular, booked a 13 percent revenue growth driven mainly by the hotdog category.
