Earlier this month, Greggs warned that uncertainties over the potential impact of coronavirus were clouding its 2020 outlook, after a stellar 2019 that saw profit jump 27%. The company had increased its total dividend by 25.8% to 44.9 pence and even said it would consider payment of another special dividend at the time of its interim results, before a dramatic turn of events over COVID-19 prompted the dividend cancellation. Greggs, which has more than 2,050 outlets in the UK, said it does not expect a rise in year-on-year profit for the current fiscal.

Greggs said on Wednesday that following a successful trial in London, Newcastle and Glasgow, it had opted to work exclusively with Just Eat, providing sausage rolls and steak bakes, including vegan-friendly versions, as well as sandwiches and sweet treats, direct to customers' doors.
