Finnish food products group Raisio Plc said on Friday (15 September) that it was downgrading its operating profit forecast for 2006.

The result development is estimated to be weaker than expected in Raisio's food businesses in Finland, Sweden and Russia as well as in food diagnostics.

The forecast of these businesses for the rest of the year has been downgraded due to decreased sales estimates and the costs related to ongoing rationalisation measures.

A strategic evaluation of the diagnostics business is being prepared, the company said.

At the group level the operating result excluding one-off items is expected to be clearly lower than the operating result of the previous year excluding one-off items. However, the full-year result including one-off items is estimated to be higher than in 2005.
