Cheers! – Looking ahead to a welcome return

On 12th April the country took another positive step forward in the wake of the pandemic, as we were all once again able to venture back into pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes, albeit we had to stay in beer gardens and outdoor dining areas, to enjoy a freshly pulled pint, coffee or a meal.

This long-awaited development formed part of the Prime Minister’s four-step plan in easing lockdown and getting the country, and the hospitality industry, back up and to a level of normality.

With friends and family meeting up and enjoying the latest relaxed level of Covid rules, we are also stepping closer to the next phase of the plan: the full reopening of the pub and hospitality industry.

From 17th May pubs will be allowed to reopen their doors to the public and allow them access to indoor seating. As it stands the rules will still require patrons to observe social distancing and the ‘rule of six’ but nonetheless this is an extremely positive move for everyone.

It is of course no surprise that the hospitality industry has been hit extremely hard by Covid-19 but there is now light at the end of the tunnel. With this in mind, there is no doubt publicans will want to hit the ground running and ensure their businesses are doing the best they can in offering quality drinks and the freshest of foods to their long-lost customers.

The Covid-19 virus has meant the pressure and challenges in finding refrigerated logistics companies that are capable of meeting the demand and the exacting standards required within the hospitality sector are high.
