Financial report summary

  • The COVID-19 pandemic could have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
Management Discussion
  • Net revenues increased by $56.9 million, or 141.4%, in the three months ended March 28, 2020, as compared to the prior-year period primarily due to an increase in volume sold, primarily driven by expansion in the number of distribution points both domestically and abroad, higher sales velocities at existing retail customers, and contribution from new products introduced subsequent to the three months ended March 30, 2019, partially offset by lower net price per pound. During the quarter, specifically in the latter half of March, we experienced a reduction in sales to foodservice customers as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis as domestic and international stay-at-home orders became more widespread. The deceleration in foodservice sales was partially offset by the increase in retail demand in the latter half of March as consumers shifted towards more at-home consumption.
