Our response to the coronavirus
**Update 6th April 2021** -Following the UK Government’s announcement surrounding the easing of lockdown measures, we can confirm that all of our stores will re-open on the 12th April 2021. We are opening in the safest way possible, and the measures that we are taking are outlined below.
We want to reassure you that, as we reopen out stores, we are doing everything that we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and customers. As a company, we take hygiene very seriously and have been implementing clean practices since we began trading. However, to help tackle the spread of the coronavirus within our facilities, we have introduced additional policies and more rigorous cleaning operations. Highlights of these additional policies can be found below:
- Every staff member is required to thoroughly sanitise their hands upon entry.
- Every staff member has been informed of the strict process that they must follow if they display any flu-like symptoms in-line with government advice.
- Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of all work surfaces including desks, work areas, kitchen areas, toilets, etc.
- Alternating shift patterns to avoid disruption if a case is detected.
- All staff who can work from home have been advised to & provided with the tools needed to do so.
- Limited number of customers allowed inside at a time

Production & Cleanroom
