Retail net revenues for the first fiscal quarter of 2013 decreased by $2.7 million, or (8.3%) to $29.9 million, from the $32.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, due primarily to reduced sales to Jenny Craig, Inc., Safeway Inc. and other retail accounts of $3.4 million, $1.0 million and $900,000, respectively. The decreases were partially offset by increased revenues from Boston Market products of $2.6 million.
Foodservice net revenues increased by $5.0 million, or 33.3%, to $20.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 from $15.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, due primarily to increased sales volume to Panda Restaurant Group of $6.4 million, offset by decreased airline and other (non-Panda) foodservice customer net revenues of $627,000 and $773,000, respectively.
Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 decreased by $1.2 million, or 25.5%, to $3.5 million from $4.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, due largely to a shift in product mix, less favorable commodity prices, and increased freight and storage expense primarily related to shipments for Boston Market products.
Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 was 7.1% of net sales, compared to 9.9% for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.
