JDE Peet’s Reports Half-year 2020 Results

Aug. 6, 2020

JDE Peet's announced half-year results, noting the impact of COVID-19 on the away-from-home channel, which experienced "good" recovery starting in June. 

CEO Casey Keller released the following statement regarding the report:

“JDE Peet’s delivered strong performance in the first half of 2020, demonstrating the resilience of our business and brands despite the unprecedented economic and social disruption of COVID-19. Our balanced coffee and tea portfolio allowed us to quickly adapt to rapidly changing consumer habits, following the dynamic shift of cups from the away-from-home to the in-home environment. Early in the crisis, our team took proactive steps to ensure the health and safety of employees worldwide, and protect our business operations, enabling us to continue serving customers and consumers without supply disruption. Despite a volatile environment, we delivered very strong adjusted EBIT growth, reflecting our pure-play focus as well as a disciplined approach to cost management. In addition, we are well on track to meet our deleveraging goal. Starting in June, we’ve seen a good recovery in our away-from-home businesses as local markets begin to recover from lockdowns. Given our strong portfolio of products and channels, we are uniquely positioned to continue to gain market share as we pivot to meet the needs and opportunities of our customers and consumers around the world.”
