CEO Statement

Christophe Barnouin(CEO) commented: We had a good start in 2016 and our growth momentum on core brands and categories has continued. A&P investments have been slightly ahead of Q1 last year and still we delivered a further increase in EBITE. Performance of Isola Bio and recently integrated Piramide are in line with plans. We have further gained share on key brands in a growing market.

We are positive that 2016 will be yet another year where more consumers will shift to healthier and more sustainable food and we are in a good position to drive and benefit from this trend.
