Revised Arrangements for the Annual General Meeting to be held on Thursday 30 April 2020

Kerry Group plc ("the Company") is scheduled to hold its Annual General Meeting ("AGM") on Thursday, 30 April 2020 at 2pm. Due to the extension until 5 May 2020 of the Irish Government's restrictions in relation to travel and public gatherings, which were introduced to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (the "Restrictions"), the AGM cannot proceed at the Brandon Hotel, Tralee, Co. Kerry as previously advised and shareholders will not be able to attend in person.

Subject to any further arrangements that may become necessary on account of changes to the Restrictions, Kerry Group plc will adjourn the meeting to 2.30pm on the same date (30 April 2020) at the Company's Global Technology & Innovation Centre which is located in Millennium Park, Naas, Co. Kildare. In order to abide by the Restrictions, and to prioritise the health and safety of our shareholders and employees, the adjourned AGM will be held with the minimum necessary quorum of three shareholders (which will be facilitated by the Chairman of the meeting). While no shareholder should attempt to attend the AGM in person, all shareholders are invited to attend the meeting via webcast which can be accessed through our website ( www.kerrygroup.com/agm ). This facility will allow shareholders to listen to the business of the meeting. Shareholders will not be able to use this facility to vote or to ask questions. Please note that shareholders will be required to provide their Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) to join the webcast.

All resolutions at the AGM will be put to a poll (which incorporates proxy votes received prior to the meeting) and the Company will publish the results of the poll later in the day on its website. Shareholders are therefore encouraged to submit their proxy votes as soon as possible but in any event no later than 2pm on Tuesday 28 April 2020. Given the Restrictions, shareholders should appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy rather than another person who will not be permitted to attend the meeting in person. Proxy voting can be carried out by availing of one of the following options:

   --    postal voting by completing the Form of Proxy; 
   --    via the Company's website at   www.kerrygroup.com/proxy ; or 
   --    via the CREST system for those shareholders who hold their shares in CREST. 

For further instructions on proxy voting, please see the Form of Proxy and the Shareholder Information section of the AGM Notice or consult our website ( www.kerrygroup.com/agm ). If shareholders have queries on voting please contact the Group Secretary's office by phone on +353 66 718 2000, by email at registrar@kerry.ie or by writing to the Group Secretary at Kerry Group plc, Prince's Street, Tralee Co. Kerry.

Before the AGM, shareholders may submit questions by email to registrar@kerry.ie or by posting them to the above address to be received no later than 27 April 2020. The shareholder's SRN must be quoted on all questions. Any questions received by the due date, relating to the business of the meeting, will be summarised and published, together with their answers, on the Company's website on the day of the AGM.

The Board will continue to monitor the evolving impact of the pandemic, with the health and safety of our shareholders, employees and other stakeholders remaining our priority. Shareholders are encouraged to check Regulatory News Services and the Company's website ( www.kerrygroup.com/agm ) for any further updates in relation to the AGM.
