The group added that trading in the period had been in line with management expectations.

Peter Shaw, chief executive, added that a marketing campaign launched in the second half of January featuring Polish celebrity chef Damian Kordas had been “effective at driving sales”, as had a partnership with online food delivery site Pyszne, with all of DP Poland’s stores now on the Pyszne system.
