Budgens retailer Tout is back in profit.

The Top 50 indie, which has four stores in the South of England, reported a pre-tax profit of £237,895 in the year to 31 March 2014 versus a loss of £65,184 the year before, according to accounts at Companies House. Turnover rose 3% to £24.5m.

In the accounts, MD Philip Tout said “profitability was determined by fuel costs and prices charged by major suppliers” in its market.
