06 October, 2010

Marston’s has said it traded in line with expectatios in the year to October 2, ahead of the formal announcement of its results in December.

The pubs and brewing company experienced “improving trends” in each of its trading divisions.

Its results will show both turnover and operating profit in the Marston’s beer company slightly ahead of last year.

Own-brewed ale volumes were slightly lower than the previous year, but continued to significantly out-perform the UK beer market, Marston’s said.

In a trading statement, the company said: “We have seen improving trends in each division and made good progress in implementing our strategy.”
