(Sharecast News) - Hilton Food chairman Robert Watson disposed of 50,000 ordinary shares in the FTSE 250-listed producer on Friday.
Watson, who joined Hilton as CEO in 2002, sold the shares at an average price of 950p each, for a total value of £475,000.

Hilton Food said on Thursday that it performed in line with expectations in the year to 30 December 2018, driven by Seachill and its Australian operations.

The company saw "strong" year-on-year sales growth, with growth in a number of existing and new markets. In Western Europe, it has continued to grow the business, with higher turnover, particularly in the UK and Ireland.

As of 1650 GMT, Hilton shares had slipped 1.24% to 956p
