Review Q3/2009                                                                  

Atria Group's Q3/2009 net sales showed an 8.4% decline year on year. Calculated 
in fixed currencies, the Group's net sales showed a year-on-year decrease of    
4.8%. The recession has lowered demand in all of Atria's business areas. The    
Group's EBIT in Q3 was EUR 16.9 million, representing 5.2% of net sales.        

As a result of successful management of product margins and costs, Atria        
Finland's EBIT improved slightly from the figure for the corresponding period in
2008. To ensure future competitiveness, an efficiency improvement programme was 
launched during the review period. The effects of the programme will begin      
emerging gradually at the end of the year and will be fully realised by Q3/2010.

Calculated in fixed currencies, Atria Scandinavia's comparable net sales        
(excluding the net sales of the Lätta Måltider unit) decreased by 4.9%. As a    
result of a more stable Swedish krona, better raw material prices, an improved  
sales structure, and efficiency improvements, Atria Scandinavia's profitability 
showed improvement since the beginning of the year.                             

Atria Russia's net sales increased by 26.4% year on year. The earnings          
improvement continues to develop positively. The operating loss of Campomos     
decreased markedly, and, because of the good profitability of Pit-Product, only 
a slight operational loss was posted. The integration and efficiency improvement
of Campomos, which was acquired toward the end of last year, has progressed as  
planned.                                                                        

The Group's free cash flow for Q3/2009 was positive, and interest-bearing debt  
fell by EUR 7.7 million.

Atria Finland's net sales over the review period fell short of last year's      
level. Atria estimates that its overall market share in the retail market has   
decreased slightly. This decrease has been the most notable in the area of      
retailers' private lable production. Atria Fresh, a new type of line of         
convenience food products, was successfully launched in early September. Sales  
of barbecue products over the summer were also a success.                       

Pig slaughtering volumes are lower than last year, which decreased Atria's      
export sales during the period under review. The production of pork decreased by
5.1% in Finland in comparison to the corresponding period in 2008 (source:      
Suomen Gallup Elintarviketieto Oy, October 2009). Atria's pork processing       
volumes decreased by some 4%. Thus, Atria was able to increase its procurement  
share of domestic pork.                                                         

The poultry slaughtering volume also has been adjusted in response to lower     
demand. The downward trend in sales of the Food Service products, which first   
emerged during the autumn of 2008, has also had an effect on the development of 
net sales.                                                                      

The EBIT figure was somewhat better in Q3/2009 than in the previous year. The   
Q3/2009 EBIT was 7.3% of net sales, while the review period's EBIT was 5.5% of  
net sales. Atria Finland's performance improvement can be considered good under 
current market conditions. The positive development is due to successful        
management of product margins and costs and the discontinuation of unprofitable 
products.                                                                       

To ensure future competitiveness, Atria Finland launched a comprehensive        
efficiency improvement programme with which it seeks to achieve annual savings  
of approximately EUR 5 million in its cost structure. The effects of the        
programme will emerge gradually, starting at the end of the year, and will be   
fully realised by Q3/2010.                                                      

Overall market development in 2010 is expected to be weaker than that for 2009. 
Both the employment situation and the pressure on food prices have an effect on 
the development of the food product market. To respond to the challenging market
conditions, Atria aims to further reduce costs and improve efficiency.

Atria Scandinavia's net sales for the period were down year on year, mostly due 
to the sales of the Lätta Måltider unit and the weakening of the Swedish krona. 
Calculated in fixed currencies, Q3/2009 comparable net sales (excluding the net 
sales of the Lätta Måltider unit) saw a decrease of 4.9%. The decline in sales  
of consumer-packed meat, Foodservice products, and cheeses has also had an      
effect in the weak development of net sales.                                    

Atria Scandinavia's market shares have remained stable. Recession weakens       
demand, especially for the Foodservice products.                                

The review period's EBIT has decreased notably from last year's level. The fall 
is mainly a result of the weak Swedish krona and the loss-making salad and      
sandwich business, which was sold in Q2/2009. Atria Scandinavia purchases a     
large proportion of its raw materials from abroad, and the price of import goods
has risen on account of the weaker krona. As a result of the more stable krona  
and raw material prices and the improved sales structure, profitability improved
during Q3. The efficiency improvement programme launched in early 2009 also had 
a positive effect on the earnings for the period.                               

Atria Scandinavia has announced the launch of an extensive efficiency           
improvement programme to restructure its production and logistics in the Deli   
business unit. The net reduction in personnel will be about 77 employees.       

Restructured business and centralised production and logistics will make for a  
stronger and sleeker Atria Deli product range and generate considerable cost    
savings. Market conditions and raw material prices are expected to remain stable
in the last part of the year.                                                   

After Christer Åberg transferred to another employer, Michael Forsmark, 44, with
a B.Sc. degree in business administration, was appointed as Executive Vice      
President Atria Scandinavia and a member of the Atria Group Management Team,    
effective from 1 October 2009.

Atria Russia's net sales for the period increased significantly year on year,   
which is mainly due to the consolidation of Campomos, acquired last autumn, into
Atria. However, the weakening of the Russian rouble against the euro weighed    
down the growth in net sales.                                                   

The Q3/2009 improvement in EBIT in comparison to Q2/2009 was due to the         
successful integration of Pit-Product and Campomos. The Q3 operating loss of    
Campomos showed a significant decrease and, because of the good profitability of
Pit-Product, only a slight operational loss was posted for Atria Russia. With   
the weak rouble, prices of imported raw materials remained high. If the rouble  
holds steady, there will be no significant pressure for the price of raw        
materials to increase in the final part of the year.                            

Atria's market share in modern retail trade in the St Petersburg region remains 
strong at 27%. The market share in Moscow also remains stable.                  

During the review period, Atria Russia continued to implement its efficiency    
improvement programme, aimed at improving the cost-efficiency of the Russian    
operations. The synergies of the St Petersburg and Moscow plants will be more   
effectively utilised, and products and accounts with poor profitability will be 
discontinued.                                                                   

The revamping of Campomos marketing as regards the brand, productisation and    
advertising was initiated during the review period. The investment amounts to   
approximately EUR 1 million, the cost effect of which will mostly be seen in    
Q4/2009.                                                                        

Atria aims to have Campomos EBIT back in the black during 2010.                 

The start-up of the new production plant in Gorelovo is expected to take place  
in the beginning of 2010, having been postponed because of lack of water and    
drain connections. The start-up of the Gorelovo plant will increase fixed costs 
by approximately EUR 4 million annually from the beginning of 2010.

Atria Group's Q3/2009 net sales in Estonia remain at the same level as that seen
last year. Atria's performance in Estonia in Q3/2009 was unsatisfactory but     
somewhat better than in Q2/2009. The Q3 result includes EUR 0.2 million in costs
related to the efficiency improvement programme.                                

The overall demand in the Estonian market remains weak. Retail sector volumes   
have decreased by 16% in comparison to 2008. At the same time, the price of food
has decreased by 5.1% (source: Estonian Statistical Board, August 2008 - August 
2009). A rapid increase of demand is not likely.                                

Atria introduced poultry products as a new product group in October. The initial
sales figures are promising. Atria has renewed the product range with key       
customers to make it more consumer-oriented. In comparison to the summer,       
Atria's position in terms of the range of products offered in stores has        
improved during the autumn. The market share of Atria Baltic's brands was 22%   
for cold cuts (source: AC Nielsen).                                             

Atria Baltic's efficiency improvement programme will generate cost savings of   
approximately EUR 1.5 million in 2010. Staffing will be reduced by approximately
100 employees.

The Group's investments totalled EUR 5.0 million in Q3 and EUR 21.6 million     
since the beginning of the year.

Martti Selin; Vice Chairman Timo Komulainen; and members Tuomo Heikkilä, Esa

Financing                                                                       

Atria Plc's financial position remains strong. On 30 September 2009, the amount 
of undrawn committed credit facilities stood at EUR 166 million.                

During the Q3 period, as in Q1 and Q2, compensation in the amount of EUR 1.5    
million for the delay of the meat product plant in Gorelovo, St Petersburg, was 
recorded under interest income.                                                 


Short-term business risks                                                       

There were no significant changes in Atria's short-term risks during the first  
three quarters. The recession lowers demand in all of the Group's business      
areas, which puts pressure on food prices.                                      

The Gorelovo meat product plant is expected to be completed in the beginning of 
the next year, and the aim is to minimise the risks related to the start of     
production.                                                                     

Because of the financial crisis, credit risks are higher than a year ago.       


Outlook for the future                                                          

The slowing of economic growth and the resultant weaker consumer demand will    
have an effect on Atria's sales volumes. Moreover, the discontinuation of the   
salad and sandwich business in Sweden and of business with unprofitable         
customers in Russia, as well as the weaker Swedish krona and Russian rouble,    
will result in the Group's full-year net sales remaining somewhat lower than in 
2008.                                                                           

As a consequence of improved operational effectiveness and more stable currency 
rates, Atria Russia and Atria Scandinavia are expected to see improved Q4       
results year on year. However, as a result of weak performance near the         
beginning of 2009, full-year earnings in Russia and Scandinavia will remain     
below last year's level. Atria Finland's full-year EBIT is expected to grow year
on year, but the Group's full-year EBIT is predicted to fall slightly in        
comparison to 2008.                                                             


The Board's authorisation for share issues and the granting of special rights   

The General Meeting of 29 April 2009 authorised the Board of Directors to       
decide, on one or several occasions, on an issue of a maximum of 12,800,000 new 
A shares or on any A shares held by the company through a share issue and/or by 
granting option rights or other special rights entitling people to shares as    
referred to in Chapter 10, Section 1 of the Companies Act. The authorisation may
be exercised for the financing or execution of any acquisitions or other        
arrangements or investments related to the company's business, for the          
implementation of the company's incentive programme, or for other purposes      
subject to the Board's decision.                                                

The Board is also authorised to decide on all terms and conditions of the share 
issue and for the granting of special rights as referred to in Chapter 10,      
Section 1 of the Companies Act. The authorisation thus includes the right also  
to issue shares in deviation from the proportion of the shares held by the      
shareholders under the conditions provided by law, the right to issue shares    
against or without payment, and the right to decide on a share issue to the     
company itself without payment - subject to the provisions of the Companies Act 
regarding the maximum number of treasury shares to be held by a company.        

The authorisation shall supersede all other share issue authorisations in force,
including authorisation for a reserve increase, and be valid until the closing  
of the next Annual General Meeting, but no later than until 30 June 2010.       


Purchase of treasury shares and valid authorisations                            

The General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide, on one or      
several occasions, on the acquisition of a maximum of 2,800,000 of the company's
own A shares with funds belonging to the company's unrestricted equity, subject 
to the provisions of the Companies Act regarding the maximum number of treasury 
shares to be held by a company. Shares in the company's A series may be acquired
for use as consideration in any acquisitions or other arrangements related to   
the company's business; to finance investments; as part of the company's        
incentive scheme; to develop the company's capital structure; and to be         
otherwise further transferred, retained by the company, or cancelled.           

The Board of Directors may also decide to acquire A shares in deviation from the
proportion of the shares held by the shareholders. The shares shall be acquired 
in public trading arranged by NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd at the market price at the
time of acquisition. The shares shall be acquired and paid for in accordance    
with the rules of NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd and Euroclear Finland Oy.             

The General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide on the          
acquisition of treasury shares in all other respects.                           

The authorisation shall be valid until the closing of the next Annual General   
Meeting, but no later than until 30 June 2010.

Accounting principles                                                           

This interim report has been compiled in accordance with the IAS 34 Interim     
Financial Reporting standard. Atria has applied the same principles in preparing
this interim report as in preparing the 2008 annual financial statements.       
However, with effect from 1 January 2009, the Group has adopted the following   
standards published by the IASB, included in the accounting principles for the  
2008 annual financial statements:                                               

- IAS 1, Presentation of Financial Statements. The aim of the revision is to    
improve the ability of users to analyse and compare the data provided in        
financial statements by separating changes in equity related to transactions    
with company owners from other changes in equity. The revision will also lead to
comprehensive modifications of the terminology used in other standards and to   
changes in the titles of some financial statements.                             

- IFRS 8, Segment Reporting. The standard replaces IAS 14. The new standard     
requires segment information to be presented according to the ‘management       
approach', which means that data shall be presented in the same way as in       
internal reporting. The new standard will not affect the segments to be reported
upon, nor will it significantly affect the information provided on them, since  
the segment information previously published by the Group has been based on     
internal reporting.                                                             

- The other standards published by the IASB, included in the accounting         
principles for the 2008 annual financial statements and adopted with effect from
1 January 2009, have not had a significant effect on the figures presented for  
the period under review.                                                        


Function-specific income statement                                              

From 1 January 2009, Atria's external reporting has applied the                 
function‑specific income statement model that is also used in the company's     
internal reporting.                                                             

The comparative figures for 2008 presented in the interim report have been      
adjusted to correspond to the function-specific income statement model. The     
function-specific income statements for 2008 by quarter and total figures for   
2008 are presented in the interim report published on 28 April 2009.            

The figures given in the interim report are unaudited.
