The current COVID-19 pandemic is presenting unprecedented challenges for our company, the entire drinks industry and beyond.

In these extremely uncertain times, we want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to put measures in place that comply with government guidelines, WHO advice but also support our customers and partners across the trade.

In light of this we’ve made some changes and taken the below steps:

- Our customer services team remains open during working hours ensuring stock gets delivered and to answer any questions you might have

- Most of our team are now working remotely and those involved with our supply chain are all adhering to rigorous health procedures in line with WHO guidance

- We’ve cancelled all external meetings, events and travel, for all employees

- All training and tastings have been cancelled but we are exploring the possibility of moving these on-line

- We are fulfilling orders as normal and have continuity of stock across the vast majority of products

- On a case-by-case basis we are exploring how best we can help our customers and partners most critically impacted by this crisis

We are keeping a very close eye on daily announcements and will keep you updated with any changes that could affect our business and yours.

I am available for any questions you may have.

Stay safe and well.

Chris Seale

Managing Director

 

Public health measures

In line with NHS and WHO guidelines, we have implemented mandatory policies for all staff that, alongside stringent hygiene guidelines, include the cancellation of all external meetings and, where possible, working from home.

All meetings and travel have been suspended in line with the social distancing measures advocated by the government on 16 March 2020.

Continuity of stock

Thanks to our own business continuity measures and the preparedness of our suppliers, we are in a position to fulfil the vast majority of orders for the foreseeable future. We will do everything possible to ensure you have what you need for your business, when you need it.
