Tim Anderson, President and CEO of Armanino Foods, stated, “Our first quarter results significantly outpaced the prior year and is the seventh consecutive quarter of record net sales and pretax income, significantly outpacing industry trends. Our sustained efforts to strategically broaden our portfolio of products through various channels are responsible for driving strong growth for the Company. In addition, we continue to lower our cost structure across multiple areas of our business including COGS and promotional expenses driven by lower commodity costs and improved manufacturing and process efficiencies including those associated with our ongoing capital improvement projects.”

Anderson continued, “While we are pleased with the current trending of our financial and operational performance, we also remain somewhat guarded due to the uncertainty of the impact of sustained economic pressures that could negatively impact our future results. As a result, we seek to realize greater cost efficiencies as we enter the final stage of our capital projects.”

Anderson concluded, “We are confident in our financial position and remain committed to making appropriate investments in our efforts to grow sales profitably with a focus on new products, new markets, operational efficiencies, and potential acquisitions.”
