Lincolnshire bakers guarantee breadrolls in coronavirus pandemic

Local bakers Cooplands, with shops across neighbourhoods in the North East, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, say that they are committed to serving local communities amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The bakery chain is aiming to keep serving customers and stocking up their counters with fresh baked goods. They even guarantee bread rolls will be available all day. If not, they will be free on the customer’s next visit.

The 135-year-old Scarborough-headquartered firm released a statement to say that they aim to continue to keep their neighbourhood shops open, for as long as is safe to do so. Putting measures to safeguard food production and shop staff is an ongoing priority as well as adding to high hygiene standards.

All premises are being delivered to daily with bread, cakes, pasties and sandwich fillings. Cooplands also mentioned that they were looking into ways to deliver to those in the communities who are currently indoors, using their 40 food delivery vans.

Belinda Youngs, CEO, said: “As we make and deliver all our fresh products daily, this puts us in a good position to be able to keep our shelves stocked, even during these uncertain times. We have increased our production of bread and rolls for our communities. The safety and wellbeing of all our staff are of paramount importance and central to our daily decision making.”

Belinda added: “As a food manufacturer and retailer, food hygiene and safety are and have always been of the most upmost importance to us. We have taken every opportunity to reinforce and add to our robust hygiene procedures.”
