Director dealings: AB Foods director raises stake

(Sharecast News) - Associated British Foods revealed on Friday that non-executive director Emma Adamo had acquired 45,000 ordinary shares in the FTSE 100-listed food processing and retailing company. Adamo, who was appointed as a director in 2011, purchased the shares on Wednesday at an average price of 1,636.0p each, for a total value of £736,200.03.

On 20 June, ABF said recent trading had been in line with expectations, with revenues up across all of the group's key verticals due to both price hikes aimed at recovering input cost inflation and a marked volume increase in its ingredients division.

Associated British Foods posted a 32% increase in group revenues to £.3.03bn for the three months ended 28 May, with a 24% improvement in ingredients revenue leading the way.

As of 1450 BST, ABF shares were up 0.82% at 1,591.0p.
