The soft drinks specialist said COVID-19 restrictions had led to a significant drop in out-of-home consumption though in-home sales had picked up and Britvic had increased its market share.
Revenues in the third quarter to June were £329mln, while year to date sales dropped by 5.1% to £1.03bn.
In March, Britivic estimated Covid-19 restrictions were costing it a net £12mln to £18mln per month.
Today it said it was not changing that estimate even though hospitality businesses had started to reopen again.
Simon Litherland, chief executive, said: “I am pleased with both the market share gains and the performance across the channels open to us, however in the near term there remains a high degree of uncertainty about the pace and level of full recovery.”
