Over the coming weeks we will be providing two million pounds’ worth of products to support independent customers reopening their businesses following lockdown.
The donation is part of our ongoing Always Open for You campaign, which has supported customers and communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
In addition to around £4m worth of product donations to frontline workers, vulnerable people and foodbanks as part of Nestlé’s wider support, we have also introduced a number of schemes aimed at easing the impact of COVID-19 on customer’s businesses including extended credit terms, machine rental freezes as well as webinars and insight reports to keep customers informed throughout lockdown.
The latest initiative aims to ease the stress of reopening restaurants and other food businesses by giving customers one less thing to worry about.
Katya Simmons, Nestlé Professional UK&I Managing Director comments:
‘Independent businesses up and down the country have felt the impact of the crisis through loss of business and the resulting impact on earnings, as well as the challenges of re-opening in the current climate. With restrictions now coming to an end, we’re committed to continuing to play our part in supporting the recovery of the industry so that together, we can get back to business.”
The campaign will support our existing customers throughout the foodservice industry over the next few months to help reopen their businesses. Participating routes to market will contact customers directly to provide products.
