United Food Holdings Limited Wednesday announced that the company is expected to report a loss for the second quarter ending 30 June 2012 (2QFY2012).

As the soybean processing division is a significant division that contributed approximately 94.57 per cent of the group’s revenue for the previous quarter, the company expects an adverse impact in its 2QFY2012 performance.
