Brakes, which normally supplies food products to restaurants and the food service industry directly, is already operating a business named the Food Shop, which will enable consumers to pick up food supplies from their Brighton depot.
Brakes are providing their customers the opportunity to purchase in large quantities that will also help them cut down the number of shopping trips, minimizing the risk of having direct contact with anyone else especially at these times of Coronavirus scare.
The Food shop is selling over 6,000 food products such as bread, milk, sweet treats, various drinks and snacks, fish and meat, poultry, frozen veg, and packaged food.
This new service will also help lessen the pressure from the supermarket chains.
How to Order?
Buyers may browse the variety of Brakes food products online and compile a list of everything they want.
They may set their order from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Sunday.
The payment can be made by card on the phone. .Once all the order is confirmed, the customers will receive a number code which will be used in collecting their fresh produce and other orders the next day.
Picking up orders are allocated from Monday to Friday, between 9 am until 3 pm.
There is also no minimum order amount, but then every order is limited to a maximum amount of £ 1,000, and buyers will not be able to purchase over ten of each particular product to ensure that everyone will get hold of what they need.
Brakes Food Shop in Brighton is located in Crowhurst Road.
Why Food Shop?
Adam Collett, Brakes marketing director says, “We were able to take some pressure off on local supermarkets by launching this service.
“And by giving customers the possibility of purchasing bigger bundles and, in large part, this reduces the number of shopping trips that they need to make, which in turn facilitates the government advice on limiting personal contact.”
The company stated that it offers complete tracking to all food items from their suppliers to their customers’ plates.
“From Red Tractor approved meat, livestock, vegetables, and fruits to MSC accredited fish and seafood, our food quality practices conform with the most rigorous criteria of the food industry and follow the highest technological and food safety regulations.”
Brakes also offers contactless delivery services to nursing homes.
The company says its drivers are trained in social distancing including hygiene measures to be taken, and the food delivery helps minimize contact exposure, saves time, and avoids market physical contacts.
