Update on the Astral Foods FY2022 trading update & warning into H1 2023

Factor in a constrained consumer, production issues and load shedding yet alone higher fuel costs and something had to give.

At Astral Foods that exactly what happened when it warned that its margins would be squeezed into its new financial year as it could not pass on these costs to the consumer.

I wrote a detailed note on the scenario and its impact to Astral Foods. See the link as below
