FOOD & DRINK PRODUCERS INNOVATE IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY
Both Hampshire Gin distillers Gorilla Spirits and Generation Distillery in Sussex saw the opportunity and need and created hand sanitiser in the first weeks of the Coronavirus epidemic.
Whilst the worst possible scenario happened for local restaurants, pubs and cafes when they were ordered to close, many local food & drink producers were also hit hard, losing their route to market overnight.
However, our food & drink producers, shops and wholesalers in East Hampshire and Sussex have risen to the challenge and adapted in the face of adversity, creating new businesses and services to help get food & drink direct to customers through new routes. From meat and veg box schemes, to doorstep deliveries, to drive throughs, we have seen a revolution in the local food & drink scene over the past month.
