Sales in Valora's core businesses rose by 8.7 per cent to SFr2.48 billion. That excludes Slumberland, the bedding group which it plans to sell as part of a restructuring. Slumberland sales fell 7.2 per cent to SFr504 million.

The group said in a statement that its largest revenue earner, K Group, which includes store sales and kiosks, was helped by improved consumer confidence.

It added that K Group's revenues alone rose by 6.6 per cent to SFr1.76 billion.
