Support for Foodservice

FWD has been in regular contact with Defra and The Treasury to explain the particular difficulties for wholesalers with high outgoings and low cash reserves. There is a severe threat to the solvency of foodservice wholesalers whose restaurant, pub and catering customers have closed. These businesses say the proposed loan arrangements will not suffice to keep them operational and they need direct grants immediately.

FWD members have submitted case studies, financial data and business modelling to help the Defra and Treasury officials with their response.
