BUA Foods’ turnover grew by 25.3 per cent between January to December 2022, with the company’s profit after tax rising by 29.5 per cent.

The food producer revealed in its Unaudited Financial Statements for the year ended 2022 that it grossed N84.54 billion more than the N333.27 billion turnover recorded a year before.

This means within the 12-month period, BUA Foods’ revenue grew by 25.3 per cent year-on-year, closing 2022 with N417.81 billion.

Despite the growth recorded in revenue, 67.5 per cent was gulped by expenses, as cost of production rose by 22.5 per cent during the same period.

According to the financial statements BUA provided its shareholders on Monday, the company said cost of sales grew to N282.31 billion last year.
