The spotlight on food technology has perhaps grown more as a result of changing consumer trends, and environmental necessity than from investor appetite for something new. According to Robbins Research, livestock account for 18% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which is higher than the portion of GHG emissions created by transportation. Livestock also produce 35% of the world’s methane, which has more than 20 times the Global Warming Potential of carbon dioxide, and generate 65% of the world’s

PCI-Pal has performed exceptionally well through COVID in 2020 and looks set to deliver record results in FY21. On its current financial trajectory, we estimate it will break into a small (£0.4m) initial full-year profit in FY23 based on its existing UK/US oriented operations. However, management has identified an exciting land-grab opportunity in three large but underexploited regions – mainland Europe, Canada and Australia. We calculate that investing in sales and partner resources in these re

Driver’s FY20 results were well flagged in the 26th October trading update. The Group achieved adj. PBT of £2.5m (FY19: £3.0m), which reflected the impact of COVID-19 in H2.

Whilst visibility remains limited, activity levels in FY21 to date have been encouraging and the Board has therefore declared a final dividend of 0.75p.
