Diageo has launched an information phone line to support licensees who want to access commercial measures announced by the government. The free phone line is 0207 728 2556.
It is being provided by business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK for customers in the on-trade.
Melissa Wisdom, on-trade director, Great Britain, said, “We know the next few weeks pose challenges and uncertainties for all working in the licensed trade. We want to make sure, where there’s government support available, our customers are empowered to make the most of it. Working with Grant Thornton we will make information and support available, on the phone and by email, to help you access measures announced by the government.”
Diageo will also make £1m available to support bartenders in the free trade across the UK, providing free training and online learning and supporting smaller retailers, pubs and bars by increasing flexibility on order sizes.
