Fresh Group is reporting sales of £3.298m with pre tax profits of £348,000 for the three months between October and December 2010.

The agency is now forecasting a £10m turnover target for 2010/11, following an £8.65m turnover last year.

The previous year the group reported turnover of £7.5m.

Fresh Group chairman Nick Porter said: "The turnover reflects the spend from our existing clients and also a healthy mixture of new accounts that are coming on board with the group."

New account wins include Co-op, Brother, Makro and Which?

Meanwhile, Fresh has been reappointed to produce Santander’s annual convention for 2,500 delegates at Earls Court in February.

"2011 is going to be our best year ever," said Porter.

Fresh Group has appointed 12 new members of staff, and expanded its headquarters in Cheshire.

"We have continually over the past six years re-invested into the business and the final fit out of [our headquarters at] Fin House sees the investment in the building alone hit the £500,000 mark," added Porter.
