Impact of COVID on the Company
The company began seeing the COVID-19 impact on its finances from early march 2020. The pandemic had primarily affected a significant reduction in keg demand from the higher labor and on-premise channel and safety-related costs at the company’s breweries. In F.Y. 2020, the shipment of kegs decreased to 3% of the total shipment volume from 2019. As per the safety guideline related to COVID-19 measures were taken that resulted in reduced breweries productivity. To keep up, the company shifted, more volumes to third-party breweries, which increased production costs and negatively impacted gross margins.
