FPA WELCOMES DEFRA TAKEAWAY VIDEO

Executive Director Martin Kersh said: “The Foodservice Packaging Association welcomes the video Defra has produced to inform the public of the role takeaways and meal delivery are playing in feeding the nation, especially those who are vulnerable.  This follows on from reports of the police challenging those in the foodservice supply chain regarding their journeys into work.  There even been instances of meal delivery employees being asked to return to their restaurants and takeaways while trying to deliver a meal – therefore wasting a much-needed meal.  We very much hope the video will enable the UK public to understand how important it is to support our takeaways and their employees who, together with those in the supply chain, are very much essential workers.  When the matter first arose UK Hospitality agreed to bring the need for this support to the government’s attention on our behalf and we thank them for doing this so quickly and so effectively.”
