Covid-19 – Corona Virus Update (Sept 2020)

Where are we? What’s happening?

(UPDATED 09/09/20)

At Mr. Fruity, the safety of our employees and our customers is paramount. In the light of the current pandemic, we wish to ensure you that, in line with current Government guidelines, we are continuing to offer our usual service, albeit with a heightened awareness of our usual hygiene precautions.

Hospitality Sector. 

Most of our Hospitality Sector are back in full flow, albeit with a reduced capacity. The transition since July 4th has been a gradual one, but the “Eat Out to Help Out” scheme really worked.

Now that this has come to an end, some of our customers are still carrying on, a value menu or buy one get one free deal. Some have opted for the Monday to Wednesday approach, where as others have rolled it out to 5 or even 7 days.

We have been open through the whole pandemic, so from our point of view, we just have to carry on doing, what we’re doing. We’re as hands-on as we always have been and our Customer Services team are just as friendly and just as helpful. Pick up the phone or send us an email if you need any help or assistance.

Coming to the end of the summer, our warehouse starts to receive Autumn crops, early Winter crops and main lines as some of the summer produce fades out. We’re still stocking a wide range, but it won’t be long before produce, such as peaches, nectarines and local berries comes to an end. You can always call the team on :- 01603 488999 for up to date info.

Social Distancing.

When it comes to deliveries, our drivers have been adopting the guidelines for Social Distancing and observing the 2 metre rule, where needed or when requested.

We have been delivering to the Care Sector over the last 6 months, so are drivers have been equipped with facial masks and hand sanitizer. We’ve also been fully aware of self-isolation with our Home Deliveries.

In these changing and challenging times, if your establishment has a new protocol for deliveries, then please let us know.  We will work with you to make sure that the order is brought to the correct location (if new) and that Social Distancing Rules are observed, if required.

Whilst we will endeavor to carry on like “normal”, please understand, that deliveries may be subject to slight delays as new enforcement measures are carried out.

This is a difficult time for all of us, and we are all in the same situation, but in keeping communication clear and regular, we can respond to your requirements to the fullest.

We thank you all for your ongoing custom and support and we hope to serve and support you through all of this and together, we’ll get through it.  We will keep you notified of any further changes, or further information should we receive it.
