Food to go boosts sales at Morrisons

Morrisons has reported a second quarter of rising like-for-like (LFL) sales, as it continues to cut costs and prices, although total sales fell due to store closures.

Pasty operator West Cornwall Pasty Co (WCPC) has reported like-for-like (LFL) sales are up 20% for the year ending 31 March.

The grocery market continues to struggle, with the big four supermarkets all suffering a drop in sales for the 12 weeks to 24 April, and Asda faring the worst according to Kantar Worldpanel. 

Following yesterday’s end-of-year results, West Cornwall Pasty Company (WCPC) has announced a new set of developments that include a gluten-free pasty and a new brand.
