Healthcare and animal care company Ebos Group says its new A$80m pet food factory will soon start manufacturing its Black Hawk products.
The NZX- and ASX-listed firm said on Tuesday that the A$80m factory in Parkes, New South Wales, would allow it to manufacture its leading premium dog food brand in-house for the first time.
Ebos said both Black Hawk and Vitapet “generated double digit sales growth in FY21 and have continued their strong performance in the first quarter of FY22”.
The group reported in August underlying net profit after tax of A$188.2m for the year to June 2021, up 15.5% on the previous year, with revenue a record A$9bn, up 5%. Its animal care division generated revenue of A$497.5m with EBIT of A$62.9m, up 17% and 26.4% respectively.
The company declared a dividend of 88.5 cents per share, up 14.2%.
