Profit before tax of €15.3 million was achieved as the Group generated a turnover of €118.2 million, an increase of 28.8 per cent over the previous year’s figure of €91.8 million.

The Group reported that after a decade of careful planning and preparation it was thrilled to open the newly refurbished ‘1950’ Brewhouse housing a number of food and beverage outlets as well as The Farsons Brewery Experience, illustrating a near century of history.

The project has now transformed the non-productive space into a revenue-earning facility which is “establishing itself as a landmark location”, according to the Group.

“Despite the macro-economic turbulence, Farsons Group delivered on its financial projections and achieved solid growth with an operational profit margin of 14.1 per cent through cost containment measures and revision of work practices,” continued Mr Aquilina.
