Trading update
Amatil Group Managing Director Alison Watkins said, “It is pleasing to report that we are seeing earnings momentum return in markets where COVID-19 trading restrictions have eased, including continued recovery in “On-the-Go" (OTG) channels. This has particularly been the case in Western Australia and New Zealand which have both delivered growth in 3Q20, providing insight on the expected shape of the recovery that can be expected in other markets most notably in other Australian States where restrictions have been slower to ease.”
