Herald to meet takeaway demand as part of coronavirus response

Herald has stepped up its supply of foil trays, lids and bagasse hot boxes and burger boxes in a bid to support pubs and restaurants operating as hot food takeaways during the coronavirus outbreak.

The quality disposables manufacturer and supplier is also expecting to see a rise in demand of its paper, single and double wall, 8 oz, 12 oz and 16 oz hot paper cups and plastic cups as the UK public follows the Government’s advice and generally avoids social settings, opting to enjoy drinks on the go rather than to sit in proximity to other customers.

Yogesh Patel, managing director of Herald, said: “Our disposable goods are in high demand at the moment and we are working around the clock to ensure that we meet our customers’ needs and keep the supplies flowing.

“These are uncertain times for everyone and we need to be prepared to react in order to best support the pub, bar and restaurant trade so that they can continue operating to protect their livelihoods.

“Our aim is to continue to have the widest selection of disposables available to this market, so that they can carry on trading, operating as takeaways, while ensuring the fastest possible delivery.”

Herald is also supplying disposable cutlery and a full range of hygiene wear, including gloves, aprons and hats.
