Turners & Growers has made an after-tax profit of $7.1 million for the six months to the end of June.
That is more than $1 million up on the same period last year for the fresh produce company. Revenue fell just over 7% to $291 million.
Chairman Tony Gibbs says it is a good result in tough trading conditions this year.
A hail storm in Hawke's Bay at the beginning of the season severely affected ENZA's pipfruit crop, reducing export volumes.
Mr Gibbs says a high New Zealand dollar also eroded gain made from higher prices in overseas markets.
Turners & Growers predicts its year-end forecast to also be up on last year.
Shares in Turners & Growers fell 5 cents to $1.40 on Thursday.
