Alliance Group has recorded its best profit result in 12 years. Last month, Alliance announced an operating profit of $41.9 million before tax and a profit distribution of $8.5m to be made to its farmer shareholders, in addition to $16.7m in loyalty payments already paid over the course of the year. Murray Taggart, chairman of Alliance Group says sales strengthened as global markets reopened, but the logistics problems worsened, slowing cashflow. He thanked Alliance’s people for delivering a great profit result and shielding farmer shareholders from the impact of the logistics disruption.
