The company is making progress in integrating the Ainsworth Pet Nutrition business and it expects the divestiture of its US baking business to close at the end of August.

During the quarter, net sales for the US Retail Coffee segment increased 2%, helped by the Dunkin’ Donuts and Café Bustelo brands. US Retail Pet Foods saw an increase of 29% in net sales, benefiting from the Ainsworth acquisition. International and Away From Home segment net sales fell 1% due to lower net price realization.
