George Weston Limited Annual Meeting of Shareholders

The George Weston Limited Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be held on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. (ET). Due to the public health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and in consideration of the health and safety of shareholders, colleagues and the broader community, this year's meeting will be held in a virtual format only, by way of live webcast.

Registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders who log in to the virtual meeting will be able to listen, ask questions and securely vote through a web-based platform, provided they are connected to the internet for the duration of the meeting.

Shareholders who wish to appoint a proxyholder to represent them at the meeting (including non-registered shareholders who wish to appoint themselves as proxyholder to attend, participate and vote at the meeting) must submit their duly completed proxy or voting instruction form AND register the proxyholder with the Corporation’s registrar and transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc. (“Computershare") at www.computershare.com/GeorgeWestonLimited by no later than 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on May 3, 2020. United States beneficial shareholders should refer to the George Weston Limited Management Proxy Circular dated March 13, 2020 for information on how to attend and vote at the virtual meeting. Failure to register the proxyholder (the person you have designated to attend the meeting, who could be yourself or another person) with Computershare will result in that proxyholder not receiving a control number to participate in the meeting and such proxyholder would only be able to attend the meeting as a guest.

Non-registered shareholders who have not duly appointed themselves as proxyholder will be able to attend the meeting as guests, provided they are connected to the internet for the duration of the meeting. Guests will be able to listen to the meeting but will not be able to ask questions or vote.

In order to attend the meeting, registered shareholders, duly appointed proxyholders (including non-registered shareholders who have duly appointed themselves as proxyholder) and guests (including non-registered shareholders who have not duly appointed themselves as proxyholder) must log in online as set out below:

Step 1: Log in online at http://web.lumiagm.com/201456442 (it is strongly recommended that you use a browser other than Internet Explorer when logging in to the virtual meeting)

Step 2: Follow the instructions below:

Registered Shareholders: Click "Login" and then enter your control number and password "weston2020" (case sensitive). The control number located on the form of proxy or in the email notification you received from Computershare is your control number. If you use your control number to log in to the virtual meeting, any vote you cast at the meeting will revoke any proxy you previously submitted. If you do not wish to revoke a previously submitted proxy, you should not vote at the meeting.

Duly appointed proxyholders: Click "Login" and then enter your control number and password "weston2020" (case sensitive). Proxyholders who have been duly appointed and registered with Computershare as described above will receive a control number by email from Computershare after the proxy voting deadline has passed.

Guests: Click "Guest" and then complete the online form.

Registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders may ask questions at the meeting and vote by completing a ballot online during the meeting. If you plan to vote at the meeting, it is important that you are connected to the internet at all times during the meeting in order to vote when balloting commences. It is your responsibility to ensure internet connectivity for the duration of the meeting. You should allow ample time to log in to the Meeting online and complete the check-in procedures.

Non-registered shareholders who have not duly appointed themselves as proxyholders may listen to the meeting as guests.

For shareholders who would like to join via teleconference in an audio-only capacity, please dial (647) 427-7450 or 1-888-231-8191, passcode: 7270579#. Please note, there is no ability to vote or submit questions via the teleconference.
