Hotel Chocolat to meet profit expectations as sales rise

Hotel Chocolat

Hotel Chocolat expects to hit full-year profit guidance as full-year sales rose despite a decline in revenues during lockdown.

The specialist retailer reported sales up 3% to £136m in the year to June 28 – up 14% in the first half and down by the same amount in the second.

Hotel Chocolat’s key Easter and Mother’s Day selling was during the lockdown but the retailer managed to move a “significant proportion” of those sales online.
