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.

“I went to the Investment Challenge hoping to learn about investments and the pressurized atmosphere of the stock exchange. I ended up having one of the best evenings since I've been at university. It was a frantic and testing event, but it was absolutely thrilling!”

“An excellent resource that has been transferred to different departments within the school. An opportunity to apply knowledge and skills in a practical environment."

“Very stimulating. Today I have seen students who find it very difficult to concentrate on maths being very stimulated and focussed. I am hoping this will be an impetus which will encourage them more in this field.”
Catherina Gilmurray, Maths Teacher, St. Aidanís High School
We used Trading Floor for an enterprise day which involved all years on a carousel basis. The students absolutely loved it - the competition between groups was immense! The high quality resources gives the game a professional look and makes the students think it is far more realistic. It gives students a valuable application of Maths in the real world.
