TSXV Symbol: CYF

EDMONTON, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - Canyon Creek Food Company Ltd., ("Canyon Creek") listed on the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. under the trading symbol "CYF" is pleased to announce its second quarter results. Listed below are some of the highlights.

SALES

Canyon Creek sales declined 14.6% in Q2, 2011 or $188,803 compared to Q2, 2010 ($1,105,022 Q2, 2011 vs. $1,293,805 Q2, 2010). This decrease in sales primarily relates to a softer consumer off take on the retail segment.

GROSS PROFIT

The gross profit margin for the quarter ending November 30, 2011 remained steady at 33%. This is the result of continued focus on reducing the ingredient costs and labor reductions, while looking at ways to increase product yields.

NET PROFIT

The net loss for Q2, 2011 is $43,304 compared to the profit of $6,463 in Q2, 2010. This loss is attributable to higher repair and maintenance cost along with an increase in Quality assurance. Terence Alty, President, states, "Though we were pleased about our improvements on an operational basis, we are disappointed with the performance on the revenue side of the equation. Our focus now is increasing our top line through innovative product offerings that we believe have wide consumer appeal and will attract both retailers and food service operators."
