CEO Mayer explained: “As a minority and family-owned business, we are also facing hardship from this crisis. As an organisation that is known to pivot quickly to meet our customer’s needs, it was apparent early on that our design, manufacturing, and logistics knowledge could make a difference for many.

“Launching FOH Health Essentials brings immediate and lasting benefits to our customers and the people they serve.”

FOH Health Essentials offers a range of personal protective equipment (PPE), including disposable face masks, gowns, thermometers, and gloves.

These PPEs are stocked in the company’s US distribution centres for immediate shipping internationally. It can also manage the logistics for airfreight and container loads direct to customers in need.

FOH is supplied to the UK through Pro Foodservice Reps.
