Things To Know

McCormick is benefiting from increased demand for its products as it continues to capitalize on healthy and flavorful cooking, increased digital engagement and purpose-minded practices. The robust recovery in the away-from-home demand bodes well. Focus on strategic acquisitions and innovations are also yielding. Continuation of these aspects bodes well for the company’s quarter to be reported performance.

Yet, McCormick is grappling with cost inflation with an escalation in transportation costs. The company’s performance is also bearing the brunt of broad-based supply chain challenges. Although management is on track to counter the inflationary pressure through various pricing and cost-saving actions, these headwinds pose a threat to the second-quarter performance.
