What is the meaning of Health in 2020?

We’re thinking of all our friends and wholesale partners that work in Scottish hospitality right now. The impact of lockdown and the tier system has made running a food and drink business in these times unbelievably hard as we take hit after hit, adapt, diversify, invest in making our businesses safe and secure and yet many are forced to close their doors once again.

Even though Perth and Kinross finds itself in Tier 3 rather than a full lockdown right now so many businesses in our part of the world are dependent on visitors and tourism yet with travel restrictions in place it’s basically tumbleweed out there. As a result many good businesses are closing their doors or restricting their hours. This is not only heartbreaking for staff and owners but it also has a devastating impact on the whole supply chain – including roasters like ourselves –  that supply these fantastic Highland businesses.
The World Health Organisation defines health as ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’ . Maybe it’s time we started focussing on all three of these states of well being before its too late?
