Management Comments
Stéfan Descheemaeker, Nomad Foods’ Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Fourth quarter and full year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA are expected to exceed our prior guidance, marking our third consecutive year of profitable organic revenue growth. These results continue to be fueled by our proven strategy, investments behind our brands and a highly engaged organization focused on consistent execution. This winning formula will serve as our foundation in 2020 as we look to deliver another year of growth through numerous strategic opportunities including the expansion of Green Cuisine, our plant protein sub-brand, across Continental Europe. Backed by the power of our European infrastructure and its unique market positioning, Green Cuisine will fulfill consumers’ growing appetite for frozen meat-free food products that are not only better for the planet, but also better for them. We expect Green Cuisine to be highly complementary to our existing frozen fish and vegetable businesses and to generate at least €100 million in revenue by 2022.”
