Hotel Chocolat

Hotel Chocolat has recorded a healthy rise in its full-year sales bolstered by “strong growth” across all divisions of its business.

The confectionary specialist posted a 14% uplift in sales year on year to £132m in the 52 weeks to June 30 in its full-year trading update.

The retailer said it expected profits for the year to be in line with market expectations.

Hotel Chocolat, which recorded a 7% uplift in interim pre-tax profit to £13.8m in February, opened 16 new stores during the year, including two in the US, which collectively contributed 5% to overall group sales.
