“I have often stated that physical awareness and mental awareness of our product – or stated simply, making our end-users aware of our products and making them easy to buy – is core to our continued success. COVID-19 has reinforced this lesson for me. In geographies and trade channels where our products remained easy to buy, like in e-commerce and in certain countries that were not subject to movement restrictions, we performed very well in the third quarter. However, in markets with strict movement restrictions in place or less developed e-commerce adoption, our sales were more severely influenced.”
