Despite experiencing a 22% decrease in feed sales, Aman Feed Ltd, a subsidiary of Aman Group, has disclosed a remarkable 659% increase in profit during the initial nine months of the ongoing fiscal year, as per its financial records.

However, the animal feed-producing company faced a loss of Tk1.46 crore in the third quarter (Jan-Mar) of FY24, although these losses showed improvement compared to the corresponding quarter of FY23.

In a disclosure on the stock exchange website today, the company announced that losses had decreased in Q3, attributed to a reduction in raw material costs and selling as well as distribution expenses.
