LONDON, February 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Pure-play coffee and tea company D.E MASTER BLENDERS 1753 has unveiled results
for the first six month of the year showing top line sales growth in the half
of 1.6% and an EBIT margin improvement of 100 basis points on the same time
last year.

The figures encompass encouraging trends quarter on quarter although it's a
mixed picture across the company's markets, with some countries such as Spain
and France doing well, but with its core home market in the Netherlands
recording disappointing numbers. 

The factors at play in the market and within the organisation has led to the
company to issue new guidance for 2013, although the company is re-iterating
its mid-term guidance.
