Sharp increase in Provimi sales in 2007

Sales of the Dutch animal feed producer Provimi have grown sharply by 13.9% in the first half year of 2007.

In this period, total sales amounted to €976.5 million.

Recent acquisitions contributed to the sales with by €39.8 million. Adverse exchange rates, predominantly the American dollar and the Chilean peso, caused a negative effect of approximately €13 million.

Sales mainly increased in Northern America (+36.7%) and France (+22.9%). Poland also saw a strong increase (+16%).

These increases, reflecting a global growth could make up for a volume decrease in China, which was mostly attributable to difficult conditions in the swine sector.

Profit figures will be released at September 11.
