C&C Gleeson is supporting the reopening of pubs in Ireland with the launch of C&C Hygiene along with a range of financial and practical initiatives to support Ireland’s pubs get back on their feet following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
C&C Gleeson is part of C&C Group and distributes brands such as Bulmers, Tennent’s, ans Five Lamps, and will also be distributing Budweiser in Ireland from 1st July.
In preparation for the reopening of pubs on 29th June under Phase 3 of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business issued by Irish Government, C&C Hygiene is offering publicans support through three key phases.
During the pre-reopening Phase, C&C Hygiene will supply physical materials to help publicans ensure they are providing a safe environment for customers in line with HSE guidelines, including divider screens, hand sanitizer dispensers and foot handles for doors.
As part of the reopening and ongoing phases, C&C Hygiene has launched www.hygieneaware.ie, to provide hygiene products, advice for business owners and information for managers and staff working in the hospitality industry.
The second initiative is the new C&C Hygiene product range of high-quality hand sanitation and pub hygiene supplies.
C&C has also launched the Local app and website www.mylocaldelivers.ie. Local connects customers with local food and drinks businesses by facilitating home deliveries, click-and-collect and on-premise table service.
Local aims to support pubs, clubs, restaurants and bars looking to offer delivery or collection services but currently have no technology solution. Transaction fees of 2% per order will be re-invested into Local, with any excess made during 2020 being donated to healthcare charities across the island of Ireland.
Ross Bissett, C&C Group, commented: “Since pubs closed, we have been listening to the guidance of the HSE and the Government and engaging with publicans throughout the country to understand what they will need to resume trading safely and responsibly. Responding with initiatives for the pre-reopening, reopening and ongoing phases, C&C Hygiene is focused on delivering both financial support and practical solutions to help publicans provide a safe environment, which reassures patrons, while preserving the quintessential atmosphere and fun, unique to Irish pubs.”
