AGM 2021

The 2021 AGM was held at 11:00am on Friday 23 July at the Company’s registered office at Premier House, Centrium Business Park, Griffiths Way, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL1 2RE. As a result of the rise in infections of the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus, and the UK Government’s decision, (announced on 14 June 2021), to extend the restrictions on physical gatherings in England, the Board of Premier Foods reluctantly concluded that it was not appropriate for shareholders to attend the AGM in person. As a result, physical attendance was restricted to members of the Board with shareholders being invited to participate in the meeting via a webcast.
