Remgro holds a 77.2percent stake in RCL Foods.
Chief executive Jannie Durand said RCL Foods performed admirably in the six months to December, as it added 56.6percent, or R498million, in headline earnings to Remgro.
The increase was attributed to an improved result in the chicken business unit, because of a revised business model, lower feed prices and improved realisations.
RCL Foods is a holding company with diversified interests that focuses on three segments: consumer, sugar and milling and logistics. The consumer segment consists of chicken, grocery, pies, beverages and speciality business units.
