George Weston Ltd. says it earned a profit attributable to shareholders of $51-million as sales improved.

The grocery and bakery company says the profit amounted to 32 cents per share in the quarter ended June 20.

That compared with a loss of $208-million or $1.71 per share a year ago when it took a big charge related to the Loblaw acquisition of Shoppers Drug Mart Corp..

In addition to its large stake in Loblaw, George Weston's other main business is its Weston Foods bakery operations.
