supporting our industry

giving something back

The foodservice and hospitality industries are filled with so many fantastic, hard-working people, businesses and organisations. As a company that's been part of these for over 200 years, we think it's important to support and contribute where we can, in a multitude of different ways. This can include providing our products / expertise to those in need, making charitable donations or even just promoting important causes through our own communication platforms.

Hospitality Action's Invisible Chips Campaign

Hospitality Action offers vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK across all the different sectors and roles. They provide support for those facing any kind of challenge, from physical illness or mental health issues to financial difficulty, family problems to addiction, helping them to get you back on their feet again. 

Their Invisible Chips campaign has been launched as a direct response to the impact the COVID pandemic has had on hospitality, and is a simple way for you to help the people in the industry whose livelihoods are disappearing. Donations will help individuals and their families get back on their feet by funding grants that cover a range of outgoings, including food, utility bills and school uniforms. They fund home adaptations for people dealing with the onset of life-changing illness and offer financial support for people unable to work due to ill health. They help victims of domestic violence to start new lives and even cover funeral costs for bereaved people in financial difficulty 

People can donate money to this cause by purchasing from a specially-prepared menu of 'invisible chips', including a small portion costing £3 to Tom Kerridge’s Tantalisingly Tasty Invisible Chips for £6 or Heston’s Triple-Cooked Invisible Chips at £9.

The Burnt Chef Project is a non-profit campaign and clothing brand operating within hospitality to challenge mental health stigma.

The profits from every item sold on their website directly fund training and resource materials as well as help open conversations around mental health.

The project is committed to burning away the stigma and shame associated with mental health for hospitality professionals worldwide.

We recently ran a webinar, with a donation being made for every attendee, where we were delighted to have Burnt Chef director Kris Hall join to explain more about the great work they do and promote the charity to our audience.
