Christophe Barnouin (CEO) commented: "Q3 has confirmed the positive trend we have seen over the past quarters. The demand for healthy and sustainable food continues to be strong and our brands are gaining market share. This is based on a stronger marketing execution and significant investments above and below the line.
We continue to see record share levels for Bjorg in France, we have achieved market leadership in peanut butter and savoury biscuits in the UK, Allos in Germany is growing at twice the rate of the organic market in Germany and Zonnatura in the Netherlands is about to enter the list of the 100 biggest food brands in the country.
The shift from "Big Food" to Healthy and Sustainable Food is a major trend of our time and more and more consumers are joining every day."
