BEIS confirms grant aid for foodservice equipment supply companies

24 Nov 2020
BEIS (the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) has confirmed the foodservice equipment supply chain will be able to claim additional support to help them get through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The announcement follows lobbying from the Foodservice Equipment Association (FEA) who were supported by trade body UKHospitality. They successfully argued that businesses linked to the hospitality industry should be given ‘special treatment’.

Steve Hobbs, chair of FEA, commented: “We are delighted that the government has finally agreed that the foodservice equipment supply chain needs extra support. I’d like to congratulate the FEA team who, despite repeated frustrations, have never let up in their pressure and efforts.”

BEIS has announced businesses that supply the hospitality sector can apply for the grants and local councils have the freedom to determine the eligibility criteria for the grants.
