NOVEMBER 2020 // As the country prepares to exit its second lockdown, Spanish beer brand Estrella Galicia is proud to continue supporting its hospitality partners through navigating the restrictions posed by Covid-19.  Eight months since the UK’s first lockdown was announced, Estrella Galicia has invested a total of £75,000 into producing and supplying equipment designed to facilitate the reopening of businesses and sustaining custom as much as possible.

Overall, 125 restaurants and pubs have been supplied with PPE such as face masks, personal and foot-operated hand sanitisers and contact-free styluses to ensure a safe hospitality environment for both customers and over 2,500 staff.  Larger establishments with outdoor areas have been offered parasols and tensa barriers to facilitate trade among larger groups of customers when government guidelines permitted, and hopefully reinstate permission for, groups of six to gather outdoors. 

Rachel Masterson, Manager at Salthouse, Cullercoats comments: “The back-to-work kits have provided such confidence to both our staff and customers, enabling them to enjoy our restaurant during Covid times.  The individual sanitizers which come complete with hooks to attach to uniforms are also so handy, meaning that the staff can always ensure they have clean hands wherever they are in work.  We’ve also received positive feedback from customers that the visibility of such PPE makes them more confident when dining out in our restaurant, which is critical at a time such as this.” 

All hospitality partners of Estrella Galicia are encouraged to reach out regarding any PPE support they may require in the lead up to restaurants and bars reopening by contacting
