Looking at the Aldi online lecura caviar range whilst there were only 22 customer reviews 21 - 5 stars and 1 4 star. Price point £6.98 which in such a sector is very low, they might be sailing close to the wind when looking at the packaging though.

I believe the Aldi stuff is mostly own label but Mrs Rhomboid has accepted her research brief with worrying alacrity...apparently Aldi do a near identical product to ‘la prairie’ caviar moisturiser 🙄

Have any of you seen the products in Aldi ?.....for the business with them to be 10% that is quite significant and wondered if they have prominent shelf space or just standard single product or multiple products and is it branded or their own label ?

I am going to conclude they have got off to a good start !

No you’re correct but gifting as a category is a lower % than in prior years...it may not have gone down in absolute £note terms though🤔

I might have confused myself but in the June presentation (not sure where now !) I thought I heard the MD indicate sales were running at two lots of £4.5m for July and Aug and I had assumed these were running higher due to seasonality orders - in prep of Christmas. It sounds promising if they are flat out on two shifts !

Aldi is their number 1 customer (I think around 10%) & going from strength to strength..my understanding is they are flat out on a 2 shift basis ..but a third night shift would entail some additional costs that make them prefer to automate further to increase productivity & margins before going to 24hr working. The US was mentioned in passing but I was deep in another conversation so missed the context, seasonal gifting is a far smaller part of the mix now which is healthy

Thanks for the report Rhomboid. Today these seem quite difficult to pick up, I suspect there are a few on the side waiting. From the June video management indicated July and August were busy with gift sets etc. for Christmas circa. £9m sales. What will be interesting is how business is developing with Aldi and whether there are any inroads in the US - surely $/£ is helping.

AGM report First impressions 1 big v busy site, large car park absolutely full, site is owned by Chairman & let (at a v reasonable rental c£3 per square foot if I heard correctly)they occupy 130000 sq ft of manufacturing/office/warehouse on a total site of 10 acres or so also owned by William Mcilroy The lease has been renewed for another 12 yrs which means they can press the button on a number of minor housekeeping capex items eg air circulation kit) The buildings are serviceable rather than flash, but they are keen on maximising productivity on the site, they’re outsourcing their finished goods logistics with a local firm on a fully integrated shared system ..this will reduce costs & allow them more room to store raw materials and spare parts whilst freeing up more manufacturing space The Tiverton site is now fully integrated from a systems & accounting point of view & is undoubtedly a v successful acquisition..they217;ve retained/won back all the high quality business & walked away from all the marginal contracts ..including Arcadia The worlds friendliest & proudest receptionist works here🙂..she was bubbling over with knowledge & enthusiasm for what the business has achieved in recent years In attendance for the AGM was one other shareholder aka Wimbledon Sprinter on Stockopedia plus the usual roster of advisers , formal business was nodded through v quickly& then a brief Q&A ..a couple of directors had a flight to catch Wimbledon Sprinter asked about the rather long serving & static board composition, nick O’Shea was chairing the meeting (even though the Chairman was present..I’m guessing he’s not a great fan of procedural stuff)...& gamely batted it back by saying succession planning was v much in hand but it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss as it involved many of the people around the table....nice try Nick but next year we’ll be more insistent if no clarity emerges in the meantime 🙂 WS then asked what the long term game plan for the business..the answer was growth ..& particularly growth in their own brands , Feather & Down is seen as a real feather(🙄)in their cap as it was all created in house & has just had its Boots Representation upweighted substantially. Also there is more distribution deals pending as Boots exclusive period has ended. I gather the next deal is a biggie..but it’s probably too sensitive to mention here🙂 I asked about Tiverton site turnover ( £13m) but they’ve moved some contracts back to Peterborough & vice versa, I said some of the shock felt at the ‘too much business “ profit warning was because I at least had assumed Tiverton gave them extra capacity to accommodate growth. Unfortunately the business ‘hump’ was the wrong profile for Tiverton & had arrived at v short notice as 1 client went on promotion without telling them in advance, another extended distribution of a product without telling them & a 3rd bought forward a launch...so a perfect storm. I asked about the funding of the significant Capex required, will they continue to run with net cash...answer probably not as they’ve negotiated a cost effective HP facility & given turnover increase they’d be funding more inventory After the meeting closed William Glencross NED Paul Forster FD & Commercial Director & Martin Stevens Technical Director /Deputy M.D. were keen to answer further q’s & Paul & Martin showed us around the factory for an hour. I’m running out of time as both Martin & Paul were hugely enthusiastic & knowledgable about the business so downloaded an enormous amount of detail to us 🙂 Great Team low staff turnover 20-30 even 40 yr veterans amongst the 300 staff there,lots of ad hoc bonuses (every member of staff got a c£600 bonus this year, business is hugely proud of the success it enjoys with customer site audits...& in turn audits right back to source for all ingredients ..highly valued as a supplier. Lots of new machinery on site but a really practical appropriate approach to automation...eg bought at a site closure auction in Wales some mega expensive kit for 10% of new cost..being put to work immediately V happy to be invested ...particularly impressed with the attitude & knowledge from Paul & Martin..any q’s Give me a shout 👍
