Investment summary

La Doria's overarching objective is to reduce the volatility of the business and improve visibility. The UK is La Doria's biggest market by some margin (c 50% of sales) and sterling weakness has affected results. The 2016 tomato processing campaign proved to be tough. In addition, the cost of dried pulses and fruit rose as a result of the 2016 summer harvest. Management expects the challenges to persist through H117 and then recovery to commence in H217, as fundamentals for the 2017 campaign seem positive, with ongoing sector destocking and lower forecast tomato production.

Industry outlook

La Doria's strategic objectives, published as part of the updated three-year plan, remain broadly unchanged: the main priority is to expand the higher margin and less volatile parts of the business to reduce the dependence on the more unpredictable ‘red line’. The economic backdrop remains challenging, sterling devaluation is not helpful and the 2016 tomato campaign was tough.
