AG Barr sees strengthened sales

Posted on 11 Jun 2008 by The Manufacturer

Drinks maker AG Barr has reported a satisfactory increase in revenue for the first quarter of 2008, but with some concern over the possibility of a poor summer to come.

Company sales for the 13 weeks from 26 January are calculated to have risen four per cent each year.

The firm, which makes Irn-Bru and D ‘n’B drinks, said that “trading in May [had] seen the benefit of some improved weather”, but that it continues “to assume we will experience average weather conditions across the summer this year.”
