Posted 2/09/2023 Flowers Foods Odyssey Earnings
Using our updated Odyssey2 panel, our data science team has analyzed 2022 FQ4 sales of $FLO brands to arrive at a preview of Flowers Foods upcoming earnings call.
DecaData’s data panel shows mild deceleration of ~20 bps in the pace of Organic Sales YoY for FLO, for 2022 FQ4 as compared to FQ3. We observe ~15 bps acceleration in Pricing YoY, which was more than offset by ~35 bps deceleration in Volume YoY.
We observe from our POS data that the slowdown in volume continued to persist during January, while the pace of Pricing YoY has moderated further. This suggests overall continuing deceleration Organic Sales YoY.
FLO only reports a single operating segment. We are forecasting strong acceleration in organic sales year-on-year, driven strong acceleration of Volume YoY despite a small deceleration in Pricing YoY.
