SUPPORT FOR THE ‘SQUEEZED MIDDLE’

FPC has joined other trade associations in the UK food and drink industry to ask the UK Government to do more to support businesses within the supply chain which are being affected adversely by the Covid-19 outbreak.

While there is some support directly targeted to help hospitality and foodservice, it does not necessarily address all the needs of businesses which supply into these sectors. Too often we are directed to the general support on offer to businesses which we believe is not sufficient or specific enough.
