Grace Kennedy (GK) Limited has generated $95.78 billion in revenue during the first nine months of 2021, which is $20 billion shy of the $115.44 billion earned in 2020.
The company, which operates in food trading and financial services, saw its third-quarter revenue climb by 10 per cent to $32.42 billion which it attributed to the growth of its international food division.
This included triple-digit growth from its UK operations along with the improvements in GK Foods USA and Grace Foods Canada. Its domestic food operations including World Brands Services and Consumer Brands Limited rebounded and registered substantial improvement in performance. Hi-Lo Food Stores saw double-digit growth in basket size with the overall food trading segment earning $75.15 billion for the nine months.
GK’s money services segment had an 11 per cent improvement, reaching $7.22 billion.
This was driven by the growth of remittance services in its key markets of Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Guyana.
Its banking and investments segment saw revenue rise by 6 per cent to $4.96 billion as GK Capital Management Limited, GK Investments and First Global Bank experienced an increase in top and bottom-line growth. Its insurance segment saw a 20 per cent jump to $8.45 billion as Key Insurance and GK General contributed to greater revenue growth.
