SCOTTISH Bakers welcomes the latest lockdown easing measures and hopes they will help hard-working bakers to bounce back – supporting jobs, skills and the high street
As the Scottish Government announces that, from 26th April, the first big steps in opening up both outdoors and limited indoors hospitality can take place where social distancing can be applied, Scottish Bakers confirms its take-away members are looking forward to welcoming customers safely back in store – bringing prosperity to high street bakers once again.
However, the association – which supports bakers throughout Scotland – confirmed there is still some way to go for the bakers who meet the needs of the wider hospitality sector as Scotland will not move to level two until 17th May at the earliest when pubs and restaurants open for indoor service.
Says the chief executive of Scottish Bakers, Alasdair Smith: “It’s great news that the country is moving in the right direction and that we are able to open up the economy in this way.
“Our members employ some 11,000 people across Scotland and include hundreds of high street bakeries and cafes as well as wholesalers supplying the hospitality sector along with schools, hospitals and works canteens so to be able to slowly return to business as usual is heartening.”
