13 June, 2008

Sales of Fuller's beer in the off-trade provided the brewing highlight for Fuller Smith & Turner in its latest results.

In the year to the end of March, off-trade sales were ahead by 7% to 36,300 barrels against an increase in total beer volume sales for the group of just 1%.

Operating profit in the Fuller's Beer Co rose 1% to £8 million. Group pre-tax profit was up 4% at £23 million.
