Bon-Ton Q4 profit tops Street

BY Staff Writer

York, Pa. — The Bon-Ton Stores reported better-then-expected fourth quarter net income of $74.4 million, compared with $78.2 million in the year-ago period.

Revenue for the three months ended Feb. 2 increased 3.2% to $1.02 billion, missing the Street’s view of $1.04 billion. Same-store sales increased 1%. (Results for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2012 are impacted by the inclusion of an additional week in each period, resulting in a 14-week and 53-week reporting period.)

“We were pleased with our fourth quarter results and our accomplishments throughout 2012. We sequentially improved the business each quarter through a number of key initiatives, including a better balanced merchandise assortment, more disciplined inventory management, enhanced marketing efforts and upgrades to our e-commerce business,” said Bon-Ton CEO Brendan Hoffman.

Hain Celestial supports GMO labeling

BY CSA STAFF

MELVILLE, N.Y. — The Hain Celestial Group has confirmed its support of increased transparency in the labeling of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs).
Since 2010, the ompany has participated in the Non-GMO Project, a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers and providing non-GMO choices. In addition to over 2,000 certified organic products manufactured for distribution by the Company worldwide that do not contain GMO ingredients, 400 Hain Celestial products from over 10 brands have been enrolled in the verification process of the Non-GMO Project.

"As a leading natural and organic products company, 99% of our natural and certified organic food products are made from non-GMO ingredients, a standard we have met for some time," said Irwin Simon, president and CEO of Hain Celestial. "Our ingredients, products, facilities and co-packers are routinely verified for GMOs, a tenet that differentiates us from the conventional consumer packaged goods companies."

Previously in September 2012, the company announced its endorsement of the mandatory labeling of food products containing GMOs in accordance with international standards, citing its long compliance with those requirements adopted in Europe and other international markets.
