Carl Wolf, chairman and chief executive officer of MamaMancini’s Holdings, said, “We turned in a solid performance in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Revenue increased 12% versus last year’s comparable quarter and net income increased dramatically on that revenue growth. We continue to manage expenses carefully and to set the stage for future growth. In that regard, we expect a strong finish to fiscal 2019 as our sales and marketing efforts have generated important authorizations from large national retailers that we believe will commence shipping late in our upcoming fourth quarter and throughout the first and second quarters of fiscal 2020.
