Bakkavor Group Plc #BAKK announced, in its trading update in response to recent market developments as a result of the COVID19 pandemic, that in the UK, which represents around 90.0% of group Adjusted EBITDA, the impact of
COVID-19 has resulted in a reduction in orders across all of its categories, most notably in its salads
and food-to-go products. In the US, orders have reduced and, together with its customers, it is taking
appropriate actions to limit complexity in its ranges, adapt its shift systems and review resourcing
requirements. In China, as it reported at its full year results on 27 February 2020, the outbreak had a
significant effect on its business in the early months of this year. After a challenging period, this
situation has now stabilised, its customers have reopened most of their stores, and its sites are
resuming service as orders gradually rebuild.
