LDC Launches Cost Cutting Plan
Company's latest attempt to revive profits
The initiative, including temporary measures to curb travel and staff costs, suggests pressures are building at the group after a decade under the control of Margarita Louis-Dreyfus.
After a rebound in profits in 2018, first-half results in 2019 declined and LDC warned the rest of the year would remain tough. It disclosed its biggest dividend since 2014.
The company also introduced more management changes in 2019, including making coffee chief Michael Gelchie its new COO, and announces internally plans to cut costs, including immediate steps to curb personnel costs.
