Associated British Foods (ABF) is a multinational corporation that specialises in food processing and retailing. Headquartered in London, its operations are spread across five divisions: Sugar, Agriculture, Ingredients, Grocery and Retail. The company’s Grocery division includes popular household brands such as Ryvita, Ovaltine and Twinings, while the etail division is spearheaded by discount fashion retailing giant Primark, which operates 384 stores around the world.

The company’s shares are traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) under the ticker symbol ABF. You can join Capital.com to follow the ABF share price today in real-time and spot the best trading opportunities.

Established in 1935 by Canadian businessman W. Garfield Weston, the company was originally known as Food Investments Limited but changed the name to Allied Bakeries Limited a month later. The firm grew rapidly in its early years, making numerous acquisitions throughout the 1940s and 1950s, the largest of which came with the purchase of the Aerated Bread Company in 1955 for $8.1m. Already a popular name, the purchase of the business led to the company doubling its market share within the UK bread market.

The firm rebranded once more in 1960, taking on the name Associated British Foods. Continuing the pattern of achieving growth through acquisitions, ABF purchased brands such as British Sugar and Billington’s Sugar, as well as Spanish sugar business Azucarera Ebro in 2009 for $434m. Today, it employs more than 133,000 people, operates in 53 countries, and claims that 90% of UK households use its brands regularly.

In FY 2020, the group reported total revenues of £13.9bn, 12% down on the previous year, while operating profit was £810m, down 37% on FY 2019.

ABF’s shares were trading above £25 prior to the COVID-19 pandemic but suffered a substantial decline with the rest of the stock market, falling as low as £16.24 on 10 May 2020. This sudden drop could be attributed to the shutdown of non-essential retailers such as Primark. The company’s share price was almost back to its pre-pandemic levels as of late May 2021, closing at £23.50 per share on 26 May.

I have been usingCapital.comm platform for a year now. I did have some issues with using the platform in the earlier days but I received excellent support from Capital.com guiding me in the process of learning about the platform and put me on track. I am very happy with this platform and find it very easy to use for my trading needs. Capital.com also arranged a series of trading webinars last summer, which I attended and benefited from.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
