We’re certainly in strange and uncertain times
Yet, as we talk to our clients and suppliers about how we can support them, we are hearing fantastic stories about what people are doing to help each other. We are sharing these stories so you can see for yourself how businesses are rallying to support our community.
Restored mill is baking for locals
We were excited to hear that one of our clients has turned their restored 18th Century Mill into a working bakery, which is now making fresh bread to sell to the local community. Alongside this, they are busy ordering additional grocery essentials that they will sell to ensure a reliable food supply for locals.
Open to the public
Many of our fantastic suppliers have opened their wholesale online shops to the public so that anyone can purchase essentials including milk, frozen and dry goods, and fresh fruit and vegetables.
Another partner has opened a ‘pop up’ butcher’s shop for locals struggling to find meat in supermarkets, and another client has created a ‘pop up’ grocer shop at one of their remote sites to help keep food available to everyone in their the local community.
Supporting key workers
We’re pleased that our super suppliers have made it possible to offer care home workers the opportunity to order the food they need via their employer account – and have it delivered to their place of work. It’s a small thing but we hope it makes a difference to our much valued key workers.
