A High Wycombe-based fine food distributor is doing their bit to help frontline workers fight against coronavirus.

RH Amar, which is based in Turnpike Way, has so far delivered 80 cases of mixed fine foods, and two cases of Ella’s Kitchen baby food, to staff at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.

The fine food parcels – each containing a mix of fine ambient foods from brands that RH Amar distributes to supermarkets and wholesalers nationwide – will be passed on to Trust staff to say thank you for all their hard work. The baby food donation will go to the Trust’s nursery for the children of staff.

RH Amar MD Rob Amar said: “As a food business specialising in ambient food and drink since 1945, one of the things we can do for our key workers at this time is to say thank you by donating food from the brands we represent.

“It’s a small gesture, but we just wanted to express our gratitude for the amazing job they are doing for the people of High Wycombe at this challenging time in our town’s history.”

The company’s donation is among a series of commitments that RH Amar is making within Buckinghamshire and beyond, as they look to increase their supply of stocks to good causes, such as supplying 120,000 cans of Del Monte tinned fruit to go into Defra food parcels for the clinically vulnerable.

The company is also supplying Project Wingman - a new scheme under which airline crew is supporting the well-being of frontline NHS staff during the COVID-19 outbreak – with healthy break time snacks for NHS workers in 30 hospitals around the UK.

Rob continued: “2020 is our 75th anniversary year and, whilst it’s clearly not the time to celebrate, it is most definitely the right time to live up to the values we have held since 1945 of always doing business the right way.

“That means making a difference to the communities that we serve, including here in High Wycombe.”

This is one of the many acts of kindness that have taken place following lockdown, which began on March 23.
