North Foods’ latest sales figures indicate that a series of financial risks have paid off.
The American food production giant declared today that worldwide sales had risen by a remarkable 19%, with much of the success being concentrated in North America and the UK.
A company spokesperson credited the surge in sales to a series of unorthodox, and in some cases heavily criticised, business ventures. The most recent of these included the launch of a chain of ice-cream parlours in partnerships with the new ice cream Rang. The brand has proved massively popular with consumers.
North Foods has also relaunched itself as a ‘healthy-eating’ brand, with an interactive diet plan to go along with its EAT healthy diet range.
The company also recently acquired ailing English food company Frozen North. Within months Frozen North had recovered 20% of its share of the UK and US frozen food market.

“Dealing Room gave students an opportunity to develop their teamwork, problem solving, decision-making and numeracy skills. Well done to all Year 11 students for an excellent Big Learning Day.”
Lynn Gibson, Head of Business Studies, Ferryhill BEC, Durham
“Dealing Room is beneficial as an enrichment activity as pupils would have no access to something like this otherwise. We will integrate this in to classroom use, mainly in the data-handling component of the GCSE course (graphs, averages, etc.).”
