Hormel Foods (HRL) Q2 2020 earnings review

Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a dramatic shift in consumer behavior, operational disruptions, and extreme volatility in raw material markets, the company remains financially strong and well-positioned to weather the pandemic. The company withdraws its guidance due to uncertainty regarding the impact of COVID-19.

In Q2, the company absorbed about $20 million in incremental supply chain costs primarily related to lower production volumes, employee bonuses, and enhanced safety measures in its production facilities. The company expects to absorb another $60-80 million in the second half of the year weighted primarily to Q3. The majority of the increased costs are expected to be temporary.
