Given recent developments as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, we wanted to write a short piece to update our members as to how our industry has been impacted, and the precautions we are taking to do our part in helping the effort.
Firstly, some of our friends in the hospitality industry have borne the brunt of the outbreak, with reduced footfall in cafes and bars. Charity and awareness campaigns such as UK Coffee Week have been postponed until the autumn, and trade events like the London Coffee Festival and the Great Taste Awards have been put on hold.
At the other end of the spectrum, retailers have seen a surge in demand through panic buying and increased customer demand, meaning they are working around the clock to make sure people have enough in order to get by as the pandemic develops.
Here at Revolver, we’ve offered the team opportunities to work from home, drastically cutting the number of people in the offices, as well as maintaining exceptionally high levels of hygiene and disease precautions. Rest assured we will continue to be able to process orders and keep up with customer demand for our coffee, chocolate, and other products.
This is a difficult time for a lot of people, and now, perhaps more than ever, it is important that we’re able to look out for each other and cooperate, even if it is remotely. Please continue to look out for people who have found themselves in vulnerable and difficult situations, and stay safe.
