Over the last decade, Nutricima has developed market leading consumer brands including Nunu, Olympic and Yo.  These brands will be further strengthened and developed under the full ownership and control of PZ Cussons.  The joint venture’s revenues, EBITDA and PBT for the year ended 31 May 2014 were £74.4m, £3.2m and £1.3m respectively.  Gross assets at 31 May 2014 were £57.9m.
