Nestlé UK and Ireland have been donating supplies across the nation since the end of March, and these donations continue.
Coffee, water and confectionary have been going out to hospitals during the last month helping keep our vital health workers going during the COVID-19 pandemic, coordinated by a team of people who have been responding to as many requests as possible.
The UK and Ireland team are donating around £4million of products to the NHS, other key workers, and foodbanks. The total includes almost a million cups of coffee, more than 250,000 bottles of water and nearly three million confectionery products.
Over the Easter period, around 1 million Easter Eggs have been delivered to hospitals, ambulance stations and paramedics, and police forces as a way of Nestlé saying thank you to these vital services.
Jane Fletcher, head of Order to Cash centre of competence, said: “We are incredibly grateful to our frontline emergency services for all they have been doing for the country during this unprecedented time. We would like to say a huge thank you to these workers for keeping us safe.
“I’d also like to say thank you to all our key workers across all our factories and Supply Chain for carrying on supplying the nation.”
Chief Inspector Andy Reeves from Durham Constabulary said: “On behalf of Durham Constabulary, I just wanted to say a massive “Thank you” for the support and delivery of the Easter eggs. It is great to see that in the present climate, to get support from businesses such as yours, while we maintain contact with the community to help keep everyone safe.”
