New Zealand-based dual-lister My Food Bag (ASX:MFB) has published its audited FY22 results today highlighting EBITDA of NZ$34.2m (A$31m) and post-tax net profit of NZ$20m (A$18.16m).
Further, My Food Bag will distribute a NZD4cps dividend to investors to be paid on 15 June, which brings total FY22 dividends to 7cps.
My Food Bag ultimately provides the same service as the well-known home food delivery brand Hello Fresh.
Across FY22, My Food Bag has expanded its product offerings beyond weeknight meals, introduced new recipe choices across its brand portfolio, and has established both a new South Island factory in NZ as well as launching a soft plastics recycling program targeting ESG performance.
The company asserts this has rediverted some 13 tonnes of plastic from landfill.
The company also notes no reported covid-19 transmission instances. Total revenue stands at over NZ$190m.
Shifting consumption trends are reflected in the FY22 data; there was a 38% growth in ready-made meals compared to 2021, and across FY22, nearly three million plant based and vegetarian meals were sold across 61,700 active customers.
The company does note, however, that supply chain challenges tied to Omicron outbreaks did see customer numbers drop off.
The company achieved an average order value of NZ$126.60 over FY22, an increase of some $2.23; relatively minor compared to Australian and New Zealand inflation rates.
Company management says FY23 will be marked by uncertainty given ongoing volatility in "macro-environment pressures," but that straightforward growth opportunities remain accessible.
The company continues to target a larger share of New ealand's NZ$37bn food sector which it expects to be underpinned by brand distribution and reach.
Further new recipes will be added to the company's product offerings and revised financial guidance will be published in August this year.
