Cashing In On Health Compass Reckons Counting Calories Totals Up The Profit Compass Group UK & Ireland Launches New Food Programme Food service provider, Compass Group UK and Ireland has launched a new programme to drive consumer education around its health, wellbeing and sustainable sourcing activities, called Know Your Food. In March, Compass was the only contract caterer to commit to the Government's calorie reduction Responsibility Deal pledge, promising to reformulate over 5,000 of its standard recipes, reducing the calorie content in these dishes by up to 10 per cent. As part of the pledge Compass also committed to provide consumers with a wide rage of healthier choices and more information about health and nutrition. Group Managing Director of Compass UK and Ireland, Ian Sarson, says: "Know Your Food will enable us to provide our customers with clear, easy-to-understand information while keeping our clients up-to-date on our leadership in this area." Branded Know Your Food materials have been developed, and Compass is also introducing Know Your Food boards to be displayed at sites, in line with the varying needs of its sector businesses. Monthly Know Your Food packs will be provided to Compass teams at all appropriate sites which include educational leaflets around key topics such as the importance of hydration and salt reduction. As part of the programme, Compass will continue to roll-out whole+sum, its innovative mix and match food concept offering meals under 500 calories. http://www.conference-news.co.uk/news/2012/05/04/Compass-Group-UK-and-Ireland-launches-new-food-programme/4313 See also: http://www.retail-digital.com/press_releases/411fit-and-compass-group-north-america-form-strategic-partnership P.S.

LONDON (ShareCast) - Following yesterday's trading update from contract caterer Compass Group (Other OTC: CMPGF.PK - news) , Nomura has reiterated its buy rating and 800p target price for the stock, saying that it remains its preference in the European leisure sector. "CPG remains one of our top sector picks because of structural growth in the catering and support services segments, free cash flow strength and medium-term potential for margin upside," the broker said. Margins were flat in the first half, but organic revenues increased by around 5%. "We are not concerned by the apparent absence of margin improvement as this reflects one-off factors; more importantly with management emphasising the potential for efficiency savings in Europe .

I thought it was in Support Services, which admittedly is a catch-all, and not in Food. However I see that ADVFN has it in Travel & Leisure, which must be a mis-classification. Contract catering fits in neither.

The sector has been de-rated recently, CPI, Serco etc. Being in Food gives CPG a more defensive profile, it would be my sector pick.

Yes, but CPG fell -2.9%, compared with -1.3% for the FTSE100. DF

As ever, perverse reaction to good results with a good increase in the well-covered dividend.

Thanks again for the input EI, I am a novice investor been going for just 9 months,to be frank its been a bit of a nightmare, I think I can be called 'a jittery investor' at the moment, feel that I am sailing against the wind in a leaking boat..confidence in anything, is at a worrying low.

Was not saying CPG is a sell, I think it's a great company and looks a sound longer term investment imv. It is also a global business, however it's biggest market is the US. Nice yeild as well at the price you paid, short term share price who knows.
