Reopening Solutions for Operators

As the foodservice industry begins thinking about reopening following the outbreak of COVID-19 in the UK, FEM has a selection of products to help you. 

You may already be in the process of a phased reopening, or are planning for when you can reopen, either way, it is essential to be ready for when your doors reopen to the general public. Today's customers are concerned about health, and with good reason, the Coronavirus pandemic has meant all businesses MUST step up safety procedures, cleaning, sanitation and much more to keep staff and customers safe, ease the pressure on our emergency services, and most importantly save lives.

The foodservice and hospitality industry has been hit hard by the pandemic, being the first to close and most likely will be the last to reopen to the general public.

The ‘Plan’ of Attack

As we know, the government is planning a phased approach to coming out of lockdown. Yesterday Andrew Seymour, Editor of the Foodservice Equipment Journal, responded following Prime Minister Boris Johnston’s address to the nation on Sunday evening:

“Prime minister Boris Johnson has given his clearest indication yet of when he expects the UK hospitality sector to properly begin opening its doors again – citing July as the timeframe the government is working to.

“In a speech to the nation last night, Mr Johnson indicated it would be at least two more months before the hospitality sector, along with other public places, could start to re-open.”

While the industry awaits further government guidance on how to operate under social distancing guidelines, there are many other factors your business must consider in the plan to reopen.

At FEM we are here to help you get prepared in our ‘Reopening Solutions for Operators' series, featuring a range of products, solutions and guidance in helping you plan ahead of the July timeframe.
