- Venture Life Group says that for the six months to 30 June its revenues rose 28% to £7.8m, from £6.1m a year earlier. On a like-for-like basis, revenues growth was 18%.

"The first half of 2017 has shown continued growth and momentum in the business," said CEO Jerry Randall.

"The UltraDEX acquisition is now fully integrated and delivering the synergies and profitability expected," he said.

"It is also attracting good interest internationally. This has validated our decision to make the acquisition and also proves the model we have for utilising the good operational leverage that we have which is available for future acquisitions.

"I am delighted with the continued organic growth of the business in challenging markets and in particular, that we have delivered a record level of sales during June in both Biokosmes, and UltraDEX."
