Primula Cheese, which is owned by the charitable Kavli Trust, has been doing its bit to help out local NHS services, charities and good causes during the unprecedented Coronavirus pandemic.
Not only has the Gateshead-based business remained open since the start of the pandemic, with employees working harder than ever to ensure they can continue to feed the nation, it has also sought out ways to help in the local community, with management, office staff and production staff all coming together to make a difference.
Since March, vital PPE such as 14,000 gloves and 3,000 aprons have been delivered to various NHS services across the North East to assist frontline staff in their lifesaving efforts whilst ensuring their own safety; and products from Primula and its sister brands St Helen’s Farm and Castle MacLellan have been distributed to local food banks, in thousands of urgently-needed food parcels through local authorities and in packs put together for those who are shielding and being supported by North East cancer charity, FACT.
Staff also arranged for toiletries and other essentials to be donated to local hospitals and hospices and hundreds of pounds have been raised by staff members volunteering for drastic lockdown hairstyles like Mohicans and shaved heads.
Part of the Kavli Group, Primula is owned by the charitable Kavli Trust. Each year all profits that aren’t reinvested into the business are donated to charities and good causes around the world and right here in the UK.Take me back to news
