2 Basis of accounting

The condensed financial statements have been prepared using accounting policies consistent with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee (IFRIC) interpretations as endorsed by the European Union. The same accounting policies, presentation and methods of computation have been followed in the preparation of these results as were applied in the Company's latest annual audited financial statements however, for the current period the Group has adopted IFRS 13 "Fair value measurement" which has had no significant impact on the results or financial position.

The financial information for the period ended 29 December 2013 does not constitute the full statutory accounts for that period. The Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2013 have been filed with the Registrar of Companies. The Independent Auditors' Report on the Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2013 was unqualified, did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis, and did not contain a statement under 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006.

The condensed financial statements are presented in sterling and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand pounds ('000).

Except when otherwise indicated, the consolidated accounts incorporate the financial statements of Tasty plc and its subsidiary, Took Us A Long Time Limited made up to the relevant period end.

The basic earnings per share figures are calculated by dividing the net profit for the period attributable to shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period. The diluted earnings per share figure allows for the dilutive effect of the conversion into ordinary shares of the weighted average number of options outstanding during the period. Options are only taken into account when their effect is to reduce basic earnings per share.
