The increase in gross profit was due to the increase in sales, while the increase in gross profit percentage was due to the positive effect of price increases put into effect in the second quarter coupled with the elimination of certain promotional allowance programs that were in effect in the 2012 period. The company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the twenty-six week period ending June 29, 2013 were  $2,493,000 and 32%, respectively, compared to $1,946,000 and 28%, respectively, for the period ending June 30, 2012.

As a result, the company recorded net income of $181,000, or $0.04 per share, for the thirteen weeks ended June 29, 2013 compared to a net loss of $98,000, or $0.02 per share, for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2012.

Mr. David Mintz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company stated, "Our results for the second quarter of 2013 reflect our continuing efforts to improve our sales. We are pleased by our double digit sales growth in the quarter, which was spurred by the continued growth in sales of our non-dairy cheese products. The introduction of new products and price increases instituted in the first and second quarters of the year have also helped to improve our sales and gross margins. We are optimistic about introducing our mozzarella dairy-free cheese into the chain restaurant pizza marketplace, offering a dairy-free cheese topping for lactose intolerant consumers. We believe our results will continue to improve during the remainder of fiscal 2013."
