An industry source told betterRetailing last week that limited production had restarted by 21 February, and the company’s top-selling core lines would be the first to arrive back in stores.
Asked about its progress, a spokesperson for KP Snacks confirmed: “We continue to make progress in recovering from our recent ransomware incident.
“Over [19-20 February] we resumed production across our seven manufacturing sites, which, although limited, has remained constant and as planned. At this initial stage, we are focusing production capacity on an adapted range of priority products to support a phased recovery.
“We would like to thank our customers for their support and flexibility while we work at pace to restore full supply.”
Following the ransomware attack on the supplier on 28 January, Nisa claimed availability issues on KP Snacks lines could last “until the end of March at the earliest”.
