Food and beverage company Tiger Brands' headline earnings per share is down 17%, on the back of a difficult trading environment.
Fishing company Oceana Group, which produces Lucky Star pilchards, says it expects a steep drop in headline earnings per share when it releases its financial results for the year ended 30 September.
Oceana's interim CEO Imraan Soomra will be taking over the role as CEO from August 1, the company has said.
The Food and Allied Workers Union has handed a memorandum to the City of Cape Town, calling for Oceana to continue operating in Hout Bay.
Oceana's reason for closing its factory in Hout Bay needs to be urgently addressed to meet Fawu's needs and Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille should support this - Fawu.
The main aim of Fresh Air for Hout Bay was always to find a solution to the smell, says its facilitator Kiara Worth.
Once a small fishing village, Hout Bay's population has expanded over recent years and the town has developed significantly, says Oceana.
It might be smelly, but the fishing company that provides work to 100 people in Hout Bay should not be closed to appease Hout Bay's wealthy, says Cosatu.
Fishing group Oceana is number one on a most empowered companies ranking.
Fishing group Oceana's profits would have performed better if it wasn't for a R248m tax expense.
Oceana is pleased with its unaudited interim results, with group revenue up 3% to R3.557bn, and the dividend declared up 10% at R1.23 per share.
Oceana has announced that it will no longer close down its controversial fishmeal factory in Hout Bay, which has been celebrated as a victory for the 98 employees.
About 200 Fawu member marched to the City of Cape Town and Oceana to hand over a memorandum regarding the fishery's factory closure plans in Hout Bay.
If Oceana closes down its fish-meal factory in Hout Bay, it will have a massive impact on the community, according to a civic association figure.
Following Oceana's decision to close its Hout Bay factory, an activist says the town is in need of a long-term sustainable development plan.
The Food and Allied Workers Union will embark on a protest march in Cape Town to oppose the planned closure of Oceana’s fish-meal factory in Hout Bay.
Nearly 100 employees will lose their jobs if fishing group Oceana is forced to shut down its Hout Bay operation, a spokesperson says.
Many happy returns - on equity and assets.
