The UK Government has released plans for a second wave of business support, with the focus pointing towards support for UK's Food & Drink Wholesalers.
The Government has described this relief package of £1.5 billion to be a "targeted support package for businesses who have been unable to benefit from the existing £16 billion business rates relief for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses."
The FWD's Chief Executive, James Bielby has highlighted the brilliant work of consistent Wholesale pressure on the Government to provide adequate support for UK Wholesalers.
“The Treasury highlights food wholesalers as an example of where this fund should be distributed and it couldn’t be clearer that our sector is at the front of the queue." Said Bielby.
