Fuller, Smith & Turner's Beer Company division has reported a 1% increase in operating profit to £8m and a 3% increase in revenue to £60.3m for the year to 29 March.

Own beer volumes, which includes London Pride, rose 4% during the year, boosted by growth of 7% in the off-trade and a 21% growth in exports.

London Pride continued to lead the premium ale market with market share growth in all sectors, the brewer said, while its Organic Honey Dew brand had also shown 'excellent' growth.
