Stay safe at home with Home Delivery
With the Government advising people to stay at home as much as possible, more and more of us are relying on home delivery for our food and drinks. But with supermarkets’ delivery services facing long delays, food wholesalers all over the UK are stepping in to provide an alternative – and it’s a local distributor who will be coming to your door.
Our High Streets are closed, so food distributors who usually deliver to your local restaurants, pubs and cafes have temporarily lost most of their customers – but they do have stocks of your favourite food, drink and household products. Their vans and drivers are at your service.
Find a company local to you at the following links localfooddrops.co.uk.
As the trade association of the Scottish wholesale sector, SWA will continue to work with members, partners in the supply chain and the Scottish Government to make sure supplies get through to Scotland’s convenience stores and key public sector customers including schools as well as the most vulnerable people who are shielding at home or in social care settings (food2care.co.uk pairs care homes with nearby food distributors so they can get professional foodservice delivery).
These distributors will support you, and by using their service, you’re helping them to keep trading through this. That means that when the small independent local businesses we all love open up again, they’ll have a supply chain to put products on their menus and shelves.
It also means that the distributors will be able to carry on delivering to the vital services that need them most, like care homes, schools and hospitals, over the coming weeks and months.
