Food group Greencore said its volumes were continuing to hold up well as the ongoing coronavirus crisis continued, but warned it was too early to predict the impact on 2020 results.

The group said its current trading for the year was broadly in line with expectations, with its supply chain and production network fully operational. However, the past 10 days had seen a more pronounced impact on the UK food industry from Covid-19, Greencore said, with its chief market the grocery sector also feeling the impact.

“Currently, from a demand perspective, group volumes are holding up well, albeit there is a pronounced change in mix across different parts of the product portfolio and across customers’ store formats,” the group said in an update to the market.
