FY21 was a year of laying firm foundations following a substantial reorganisation. We have reached our targets, establishing the base from which we can realise the potential Benchmark has with its unique position in the market.
“2021 was a very successful year for Benchmark with much accomplished financially, operationally and strategically. The Group delivered a strong financial performance across its three business areas reflecting our new commercial focus and supported by improving conditions, particularly in our important shrimp market which had been hardest hit by the pandemic.
There is good momentum in our business helped by positive conditions in our markets contributing to a good start to the new financial year across all business areas, consistent with our outlook for the year as a whole.
The aquaculture industry increasingly recognises the importance of an integrated approach to sustainability across the value chain which Benchmark is uniquely positioned to deliver through our range of solutions, underpinning our focus on delivering profitable growth.”
“The Group delivered a strong financial performance across its three business areas reflecting our new commercial focus and supported by improving conditions, particularly in our important shrimp market which had been hardest hit by the pandemic.
We have laid solid foundations for our business with a clear strategy, financial discipline, culture and operational focus. Together with the good momentum we are seeing in each of our business areas and the growing need in our markets for sustainable aquaculture solutions, this creates a positive outlook in the near and the long term. We remain focused on becoming profitable and on delivering profitable growth for our shareholders through disciplined investment.
On behalf of the Board I would like to congratulate our management team and all our employees for an excellent performance and to thank our customers and shareholders for their continued support.”
