What does the "New Normal" look like for the hospitality sector?

Today there has been further indication on how a possible reopening of the hospitality sector could look, with a view to businesses starting to open from July.


UKHospitality have unveiled their proposed roadmap to the UK government for Covid secure guidelines for the sector.


Some of the key points from the UKHospitality proposed guidelines include:

  • Condiments would be removed from tables
  • In hotels, self-service buffets should be prevented “as far as possible”
  • Individually wrapped condiments and sauces should be given on request, moving away from sticky sauce bottles and salt and pepper pots


This means that hospitality operators need to be ready to provide guests with single portion, hygienically sealed sachets for items including sauces and condiments, salt & pepper, sugar & sweetener. For venues serving breakfast, individual portions of cereals, jams & spreads, sauce sachets and condiments to enjoy with cooked breakfasts, will form part of their every day “new normal” offering. 


As the European hospitality market has started to open up, we have seen increased orders from our overseas customers, where demand is already coming through for perfectly portioned solutions. There is no doubt that these portions will be in high demand and we ask companies to talk to us asap about their requirements so that we can advise on the best options for your business.


At Portion Solutions, we’ve been manufacturing single serve portions for over forty years and have a full range of products to meet your needs. If you require a personalised branding option, this is a service we are able to provide, dependent on volumes.  As the UK’s market leading portion manufacturer you can be confident that we can help your business get ready for the new normal.
