Sales of our vegan cheese products decreased to $2,100,000 for the thirteen weeks ended April 1, 2023 from $2,916,000 for the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022 due to the timing of cheese promotions this year.

We anticipate an increase in sales dollars over the balance of the current fiscal year as our promotions and price increases take full effect.
Our gross profit decreased to $606,000 in the period ended April 1, 2023 from $857,000 in the period ended April 2, 2022, reflecting the decrease in sales. Our gross profit percentage was 24% for the period ending April 1, 2023 compared to 25% for the period ending April 2, 2022.
We had a net loss of $102,000, or $0.02 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirteen weeks ended April 1, 2023, compared to net income of $205,000, or $0.04 (basic and diluted) per share, for the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022.
As of April 1, 2023, we had approximately $418,000 in cash and our working capital was approximately $3,554,000 compared with approximately $1,072,000 in cash and working capital of $3,625,000 at December 31, 2022. The decrease in cash during the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022 was primarily due to a decrease in payables.
