Ramdens' now has two international fish shops, including Hong Kong,. and will open Melbourne, Singpore and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia this year.
In the UK, Ramsden's says the growing power of the brand name has allowed the group to move into frozen fish and into fish take-aways which it is conducting in a joint venture with Welbourne Ramsden's and trading under the name of Henry Higgins. Ramsden's is paying a final dividend of 3.5p a share giving it an unchanged 4.5p total for the year. The shares closed unchanged at 235p.
