Nestlé Professional to provide products worth £2m to support reopening

04 August 2020 by

Nestlé Professional has announced it will give away £2m worth of products to support independent businesses through reopening after lockdown.

The donation is part of Nestlé Professional's 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, Nestlé Professional had 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, webinars and insight reports.

Managing director of Nestlé Professional, Katya Simmons, commented: "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 reopening 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 existing Nestlé Professional customers throughout the foodservice industry over the next few months. Participating routes to market will contact customers direct to provide products.
