Gary Steele, Landec’s Chairman and CEO, commented, "We had a very good third quarter. Our Apio value-added business grew revenues 18% during the quarter based on a significant increase in the fresh-cut vegetable business unit volume sales due to new distribution gains and good produce sourcing during the quarter that resulted from normal weather patterns. Pre-tax income for Apio and Windset combined grew $5.4 million during the third quarter compared to last year’s third quarter due to increased sales and margins in its value-added vegetable business and the contribution from our investment in Windset Farms. Although revenues in our Lifecore biomaterials business were down $1.1 million compared to the third quarter of last year as a result of the timing of shipments, for fiscal year 2012 Lifecore is expected to exceed last year's revenues and meet or exceed its pre-tax income plan for fiscal year 2012."Nine Months Results
