Comvita has recorded a record result this year, with an after tax profit of $17.2 million.

The profit comes on sales of $202m, compared with an after tax profit of $10.2m on sales of $153m for the tax year prior.

Comvita chairman Neil Craig said it was important to not that because the balance date had changed to June 30, today's announcement was an unaudited 12 month comparitive result.

Mr Craig said the June quarter was typically the quiestest quarter due to seasonality of sales, hence the 15-month operating result of June 20, 2016 was likely to be similar to the result reported for the 12 months to March 31, 2016.
