A major Cumbrian catering supplier to the hospitality industry has launched a new click and collect service to the public to help meet the increasing demand for food amid coronavirus-fuelled panic buying.
The 24/7 online service is designed to help the vulnerable and the elderly, parents at home with children, hospital & care workers and those self-isolating, while at the same time encourage social distancing – which health chiefs say is crucial to curbing the spread of the virus.
The new service is there to support the local community as stockpiling consumers continue to strip the shelves of many supermarkets and smaller stores. They have a great supply chain and plenty of stock with 1000’s of customer already signed up and using the service.
Caterite’s five step order process includes registering an online account, which is activated and allows people to place an order.
Once that has been placed a member of its customer service team will contact the customer to take card payment (PayPal also available on checkout) and issue a collection day and time which works for you.
A member of the Caterite team will deliver the goods to the customer’s vehicle when they arrive.
Customers are being advised that pack sizes may differ from those in supermarkets as Caterite is a wholesaler.
