Net profit for the year amounted to €81 million, which is an increase of 9.9% compared with 2016. Sales in 2017 amounted to €2,970 million, an increase of 5.6%. Excluding the effect of acquisitions, organic growth was 2.1%.
CEO Koen Slippens: "Keep Building the Future” was the theme for 2017. We can look back with satisfaction on the way we have done this with the start of a long-term strategic partnership with HEINEKEN, the acquisition of ISPC, the start of work on the Sligro-ISPC building in Antwerp and preparations for the new international organisation structure, our management model and the replacement of our entire IT landscape. Foodservice again outperformed the market and, according to FSIN, our market share in the Netherlands grew to 24.4%. Food Retail is still lagging behind the market and we saw our market share fall to 2.5%."
