FOOD group Greencore has reported revenues of £305.8m (€351m) for the quarter ended June, a 2.6pc increase.

However, in an interim management statement, the firm said the UK is proving to be a tough market with poor weather hindering performance although trading was in line with expectations.

The US market performed strongly and revenues for the 13 weeks to end June were up by more than 50pc on the same time last year.
