​Greggs sales and profits climb in ‘exceptional first half’

Greggs breakfast club

Greggs has recorded a jump in its interim profits as demand rose driven by the popularity of its new vegan sausage roll.

The food-to-go retailer recorded a 58% spike in underlying pre-tax profit to £40.6m in the six months to June 29.

Sales rose 14.7% to £546m year on year, bolstered by a 10.5% uplift in like-for-like sales from company-managed stores.

The retailer credited its sales to continued momentum built during the end of 2018 by the launch of its vegan-friendly sausage roll.
