THE shift from food deliveries to catering facilities like restaurants, pubs and schools to retail shops and supermarkets is a huge shift.

Children will not get school meals and working from home has put pressure on the supermarkets further. This imbalance will take some time to sort out.

The good news is that the imported food is still reaching our shores. My view is that the retail supermarkets need to rent the warehousing, vans and drivers from the wholesalers who can no longer deliver to restaurants, pubs and clubs.

There is ready made capacity which does not involve much recruitment and training. I know that the supermarket computer systems are probably not set-up for this but use common sense and start writing things down on paper. Please help us all.
