The FTSE 100 consumer products group said it believed the issue was now "materially contained," adding it was continuing to work with IT partners to resolve remaining issues.

It confirmed Mead Johnson's systems had not been impacted by the attack.

"However, the attack did disrupt the company's ability to manufacture and distribute products to customers in multiple markets across the RB Group," the board said in its statement.

"Consequently, we were unable to ship and invoice some orders to customers prior to the close of the quarter.

"Some of our factories are currently still not operating normally but plans are in place to return to full operation."
