Premier Foods sales rise on strong demand for Mr Kipling cakes

(Reuters) - Premier Foods (PFD.L) posted a 1.7 percent increase in quarterly sales on Wednesday, fuelled by higher sales of its Mr Kipling cakes, as the company battles to retain under-fire CEO Gavin Darby at Wednesday’s annual meeting.
