Fresh news from Unilever, Lipton Yellow Label, Daily Mail & General Trust, Britvic, AG Barr

Unilever has reported a 3.8pc jump in first half turnover and an 18pc rise in pre-tax profits. Paul Polman, chief executive, said there had been particularly strong growth from Lipton Yellow Label and Knorr jelly bouillons and baking bags.

The media group Daily Mail & General Trust has announced revenues of £448m in the third quarter, showing underlying growth of 3pc on last year but a decline of 8pc on a reported basis over the past nine months. Growth from the B2B division is up 5pc over the three quarters but DMG Media revenues are down 6pc to £196m. 

Britvic has said third quarter revenues dropped 1.5pc to £480.1m, taking the year-to-date drop to 3.3pc. After its potential tie-up with AG Barr was abandoned earlier this month, chairman Gerald Corbett said “Britvic’s prospects as a stand-alone company are bright.”
