Operational update on COVID-19, update on Ukusekela acquisition and change in
functions of directors

1. Operational update

Nutritional Holdings supports the measures that the South African government has
implemented to contain the COVID-19 virus.

Nutritional Holdings continues to supply dry food products to the lower income segment of the
market, specifically the LSM 3-6 market sector. The supply of dry food products to feeding
schemes has been affected in some way by the national lockdown, especially the closure of
schools. This has resulted in scholars not receiving food as part of the school nutrition
programme. Nutritional Holdings remains committed to continuing to supply accredited
nutritious dry food products in the fight against hunger to its customers during the nationwide
lockdown period.

Based on the reduced sales volumes due to the lockdown Nutritional Holdings is considering
downsizing its operations temporarily whilst also making permanent adjustments to its
administrative costs.

Update on acquisition of Ukusekela Holdings (Pty) Ltd (“Ukusekela”)

Shareholders are referred to the various announcements regarding the acquisition of
Ukusekela. Nutritional Holdings has obtained an extension from the JSE until 17 August 2020
to distribute the circular to shareholders. A further announcement will be made in due course.
