Food and Drink Manufacturing


COVID-19 has thrown our country into lockdown and the demand for food has increased immeasurably. The protective measures introduced by the government around social distancing and self isolation have resulted in supermarket shelves emptying as soon as they fill up. Therefore the maintenance of the food and drink manufacturing sector is vital to our national efforts to beat the virus.
