London meal delivery company receives £250k to safeguard jobs
A London meal delivery company has announced that it has received £250k of funding to help protect local jobs.
The Pure Package, a pre-prepared meal delivery programme company, received the funding from HSBC UK through the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS). The loan has enabled the company to protect 30 local jobs and ensure it can continue supporting suppliers during this uncertain time.
The funding also has supported The Pure Package’s focus on its nutrition courses which it moved online during the last few months. During the pandemic, The Pure Package set up the online nutrition and culinary practice course which now hosts over 60 students and is continuing to grow.
Jennifer Irvine, founder of The Pure Package, commented: “The last few months has had a huge impact and we anticipate that the next few months will continue to be challenging, even as we start to gradually roll-out our food boxes again.
“The loan received from HSBC UK and our relationship manager, Sunny Walia was extremely supportive and patient throughout the entire process. This meant we could support staff and suppliers and continue with our online nutrition courses during the pandemic. We are now in a strong position to recover and rebuild the business.”
David Hamblin, area director for business banking in South London, HSBC UK, commented: “The Pure Package has had great success over the last decade. This deal ensures the company can navigate the next few months and continue to provide nutritional expertise through its food plans and online courses during these uncertain times.”
