Hot Tuna gets boost from Amazon

Struggling surfwear manufacturer Hot Tuna said yesterday that Amazon had upped its bulk order for the year by 30 per cent, sending its shares up 10 per cent. In a trading statement Hot Tuna said sales in the US over recent months had been “minimal” and that it was pursuing sales in south east Asia. In March the company lost its new chairwoman, Melissa Sturgess, after less than two weeks in the job.
