“The market in the second half of 2023 showed signs of a slowdown in against a buoyant year in 2022. Profit margins were significantly squeezed by continuing price pressures in the global supply chain and an overall reduction in throughput in our manufacturing facility compared to the previous year.

“The price pressures were specifically in our raw materials and the costs of getting them to the manufacturing facility in the UK. These began to ease in the final quarter.”
