Robert Wiseman warns on profit as price war hits

first_img Tags: NULL Robert Wiseman warns on profit as price war hits KCS-content The company that procures, processes and delivers milk to customers across the UK forecast second-half operating profit falling by around £7m and by £16m in 2012.“Some of the assets that Dairy Farmers of Britain (DFOB) used to own are now coming back into operation. We are seeing more capacity and more dairy companies chasing volume,” a spokesman said. Along with an increase in the number of small and mid-sized local rivals after the demise of co-operative DFOB last year, aggressive supermarket pricing tactics are also affecting Robert Wiseman’s business. Asda began discounting milk and market leader Tesco followed. Robert Wiseman Dairies yesterday said it expected stiff competition to hurt its operating profits for the second half and next year, sending the shares down by nearly a third. whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Thursday 16 September 2010 8:26 pm Share Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Prooflast_img read more

Hong Kong gains ground on the City

first_imgMonday 20 September 2010 8:57 pm THE government was warned yesterday not to risk London’s position as the world’s largest financial centre as a report showed the City and New York losing ground to Hong Kong. Hong Kong has now joined New York and London as one of the “Big Three” financial centres for the first time, according to the latest Global Financial Centres Index, while Singapore was ranked as the fourth largest. Launched in 2006 the eighth bi-annual report, conducted by Z/Yen Group, ranks 75 global financial centres based on senior industry figures’ perceptions of each.The report prompted Stuart Fraser, policy chairman at the City of London Corporation, to warn that uncertainty over UK tax policy and future restrictions on pay and bonuses could “combine with a less hospitable business environment making it difficult for firms to recruit the staff required to meet their corporate objectives.”Fraser added: “The City understands the need to minimise risk and to repair the damage to our public finances but we must also seek to retain a business environment that allows London to continue to attract the top firms and the top talent from around the world.”Hong Kong has steadily closed the gap to London and New York over three years reflecting the rampant growth of the Chinese economy. Projections suggest the economy will have grown by seven per cent by the end of the year. Those financial centres, which have fallen down the index include Jersey, the Isle of Man, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands all of which have suffered as a result of intergovernmental regulatory action jeopardising their position as tax havensFraser’s remarks come a week after the London Stock Exchange warned government proposals to merge the UK Listing Authority with the Financial Reporting Council would damage the City’s competitiveness as a global financial centre and ultimately costs jobs. whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ whatsappcenter_img KCS-content Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndo Share Hong Kong gains ground on the City Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The payment accounts for the fact that Rio is bigger in iron ore than BHP. last_img read more
