Over the coming weeks, Nestlé Professional United Kingdom and Ireland (UK&I) will be providing £2 million (about US$2.7 million) worth of products to support independent customers reopening their businesses after lockdown.
The donation is part of its campaign Always Open for You, which has supported customers and communities during the COVID-19 crisis.
Nestlé Professional UK&I has also introduced many schemes intended at lessening the impact of COVID-19 on customer’s businesses including machine rental freezes, extended credit terms, as well as webinars and insight reports to keep customers informed throughout lockdown.
As part of Nestlé’s broader support, are included around £4m ($5,32m) worth of product donations to frontline workers, vulnerable people, and food banks.
The newest initiative intends to reduce the stress of reopening restaurants and other food businesses by giving customers one less thing to worry about.
