SCOTTISH WHOLESALE ASSOCIATION PARTNERS WITH ARCOLA ENERGY Trade group the Scottish Wholesale Association has joined forces with Arcola Energy to identify the business case for fuel cell technology in the UK’s transition to zero-emission road freight. The Scottish Hydrogen Fuel Cell Freight Trial (SHyFT), led by London-based Arcola Energy, has secured funding from the Department of Transport’s Zero Emission Road Freight programme for the design of a trial of hydrogen fuel cell trucks, supported by a green hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in Scotland. With the aim to help develop innovative solutions to support the uptake of zero-emission trucks, the trial will use learnings from field testing battery-electric vehicles in a real-world environment and from undertaking feasibility studies. The activities undertaken will help to design and develop cost-effective, zero-emission heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and their refuelling infrastructure in the UK. Arcola Energy, which has an engineering and manufacturing facility in Dundee, said that the project will assess the opportunity for zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) with key freight operators who are looking to decarbonise operations in emissionsensitive sectors such wholesale food and drink logistics

– including cold chain – and utilities and forestry. The project partners include: the Scottish Wholesale Association; NewCold; the University of St Andrews; BOC; and Scottish Power. SHyFT will also make use of Scotland’s green hydrogen supply and expanding refuelling infrastructure by incorporating long-distance routes in its testing.

INTRODUCING JAMESON ORANGE The UK’s no.1 Irish Whiskey is introducing a zesty new expression to its core range – Jameson Orange. Combining the finest triple-distilled Jameson Irish Whiskey infused with natural orange flavouring. Debuting on UK shelves and on-premise from August 2021, Jameson Orange is a deliciously smooth, naturally zesty, subtly sweet and perfectly balanced expression. Bottled at 30% ABV, Jameson Orange is bursting with flavour and introduces a modern, low-sugar twist to the growing flavoured spirits category, which accounts for 95% of NPD volume in the On-Trade and has driven 80% of all Off-Trade spirits NPD sales in the last two years. Orange has also been one of the key growth flavours in the past three years and over one quarter of consumers typically drink orange flavoured serves. The spirit drink is set to attract younger millennial and Gen Z drinkers with its innovative proposition, and flavoured Imported Whiskey has strong appeal amongst 18-34 year olds. Jameson is growing +20% in OffTrade value, almost twice as fast as the Total Whiskey category (+11.2%), and holds a 78% value share of Irish Whiskey in the UK. In the On-Trade pre-COVID, Jameson was growing +10% in value vs. the Imported Whiskey category which was in decline.

ith cases on the rise, major stock shortages of beer and other products, looming potential draymen strikes and a crippling nationwide staffing crisis, the hospitality industry may be open for now, but countless operators are struggling to remain so. The Radisson RED’s Be Kind To Hospitality campaign – which has spread not only across the UK but as far afield as Sri Lanka and the USA – has called on the public to treat staff in bars, restaurants and hotels with patience, respect and kindness as they

battle against anxiety, stress and difficult operating situations. And now some of the Scottish hospitality industry’s leading lights have once again come together to ask us all to #bekindtohospitality. Graham Chalmers, Radisson RED: “The entire hospitality industry is facing a crippling crisis right now – in fact more than one. “The staff shortage is becoming impossible to navigate, it is as simple as that. So many businesses

are suffering badly at the hands of the so-called pingdemic, with numerous staff isolating each week. “On top of that there is the seemingly forgotten issue of Brexit, with so many seasonal workers or students simply not here and looking for work. “Brexit also has had a huge impact on deliveries and stock – it’s clear to see. People everywhere are struggling to get hold of essential products. “And then on top of that we have the current beer situation in Glasgow and the looming strikes. I understand people need to stand up for themselves but the timing when the whole industry is on its knees is difficult. “So while we have been asking this for some time now, it is once again vital that the public PLEASE be kind to hospitality workers. They are really up against it and doing their absolute best in very difficult circumstances. Superstar chef Dean Banks, of The Pompadour and Haar at Home, said: “We have had serious issues with staff shortages, sadly. “Mental health is a very big problem among workers in our industry at the moment, as with people in general to be honest. “Some people are struggling with getting out of bed to face each day, that is a story we are hearing a lot. “We are looking at ways we can improve things for our staff, anything we can do to help them through this. It’s the responsibility of any business owner. “Some people are having to take sick days over mental health, others are having to self- isolate due to being pinged – although we haven’t had a single positive case, we still suffer from the isolations. “I dread my phone ringing in the morning at the moment. “We are very lucky that stock shortages haven’t affected us at all – but that comes back to our ethos of using local produce. Our suppliers are so local and we have such strong relationships it hasn’t had an impact at all, so we are lucky. “But please, think of the staff and what they are going through – and be kind.” Graham Suttle of Kained, who run Porter & Rye, Rogue St Andrews, Lebowskis and The Finnieston, said: “As we all face a new world and try to get to a version of normality that works, there’s lots still impacting hospitality and everyone that works in it. As we opened in between lockdowns we asked people in general to ‘be kind’.  The purpose was to help our teams get used to working again whilst under huge pressure and so many additional factors to deal with. “This next stage needs our amazing customers again

in. Helping us transition into a version of normality that we hope to achieve given the difficult trading environment.   “There are so many new challenges for our industry as we transition into what is a new normality - with massive staff shortages, supplier shortages, product shortages, massive logistic issues and in general continued restrictions on how we operate, the pressure on our teams is greater than ever.  We need to ask once again for our amazing customers to step up and help us transition through this period by simply being kind.  “Remember it’s things outwith our control most of the time and we are trying our very best.  But most importantly give a little extra time to our teams, they are facing the same struggles as everyone and with the added burden of shortages and long hours, a little love from the people goes a long, long way. “ Deirdre and Gary Curley Of Sligachan Hotel in Skye run the family business together. Deirdre said: “Hospitality has been one of the hardest hit sectors and it continues to struggle with staff shortages and high levels of stress and anxiety amongst those having to work twice as hard to give customers the best experience possible. “For the most part, we are succeeding but it has been incredibly tough. The majority of customers understand that we are living in a new normal but some have returned to bars and restaurants with a bizarre sense of entitlement and lack of awareness of the current situation. “Customers need to understand that being rude to hard working staff over things that are out with our control such as supply chain issues affecting menu choice or longer wait times on tables or food is just bad form and shows a real lack of empathy and awareness of what we are all still going through as a society.” Gary added: “Some businesses are fighting for their lives in a really tough environment and some staff are still feeling vulnerable having had to deal with 16 months of changing restrictions, stress and uncertainty about their jobs. We are all responsible for the words we say and how we say them. “Customers who abuse staff by being rude or inconsiderate really need to check themselves and appreciate the reality of the situation. A little bit of kindness always goes a long way but right now it is so essential to show your fellow humans some solidarity given what we’ve all been through and are still going through. It’s not that hard, is it?.” For further information or to request interviews or additional comment, contact Mickey McMonagle at Dirt Comms – mickeymcmonagle@gmail.com

THE GLENLIVET WELCOMES CONSUMERS BEYOND 'THE FIREPLACE' The Glenlivet, the original Speyside single malt, is inviting consumers to go ’Beyond The Fireplace’ with the launch of a Caribbean-inspired outdoor experience.

T

he East-London pop-up will be coming to Brick Lane’s Boiler House between 19th - 22ndAugust and will recreate a tropical beach party, featuring immersive moments, creative whisky tastings and live DJs. Tickets cost £12.50 and include two 2 complimentary drinks[i]. Challenging traditional single malts stereotypes, visitors to the experience will be invited to enter through an unexpected entrance – an oversized fireplace – before stepping into a courtyard transformed into an exotic hideout that combines the heritage of Scotch whisky with the flavour and soul of the Caribbean. Guests will also be able to enjoy a bar menu of refreshing The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve serves, including a Tartan Tiki cocktail with peach soda and pineapple, or a tropical take on a whisky sour. Visitors to ‘Beyond the Fireplace’ will have the chance to win a bar tab at East London jazz venue, Ninety One Living Room, by sharing their experience on social media using #WhiskyAndSummer and tagging @TheGlenlivet. Guests will also be given a

redeemable voucher for a free Tartan Tiki cocktail to enjoy at the adjoining Ninety One Living Room following the event. Marnie Corrigan, Brand Director at Pernod Ricard UK comments, “The Glenlivet has a rich history of breaking traditions, and our Beyond The Fireplace experience will challenge perceptions that whisky isn’t a summer drink by opening up the world of single malts to a new group of consumers. This experience brings to life our ‘Original by Tradition’ platform, and continues to support the launch of our new The Glenlivet Carribbean Reserve, which combines the heritage of Scotch whisky with the flavour and soul of the Caribbean to recruit new-to-category drinkers.” Throughout August, The Glenlivet is also running a digital-first disruptive media campaign across social media channels and Amazon search display, bringing its whisky and summer message to life. The Glenlivet is experiencing +43.3% value growth and is growing over triple the rate of Total Spirits (+14%) and well ahead of the Malt category (+20.6%).

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS OF THE ONETRADE AWARDS


ontrade@gilsongray.co.uk Foreign workers and Brexit – Does Scotland have enough staff to support our Licensed Trade? First a note to say thank you to Justin and all for the On Trade Scotland team for a fantastic evening at the 1st Birthday Bash. I am sure everyone who was there has already told them how enjoyable it was. It was fantastic to see the licensed trade in one room and have a chance to talk to people face to face instead of just by phone or by video call. It was also great to get an opportunity to speak with so many of the licensed trade and catch up on the events of the last 15 or so months. While a number of the stories are difficult to hear as the trade has gone through such a hard time, so many of you are positive and it is great to see. There are, however, issues the licensed trade needs to face. Some brought about by Coronavirus but others by the usual day to day considerations of business and operating in Scotland / the UK. One of these, which may have been somewhat overlooked due to the pandemic, is the effect of Brexit on the trade.

Jo Millar Head of Licensing

One of the things we are seeing at present is the lack of supply of goods with reports of premises potentially having to close. We have already seen Nandos in England close due to chicken shortages and there are reports as recently as last week about beer supply problems in Scotland. This was an issue back in April 2021 and has resurfaced now. The main problem seems to be with the availability of stock and deliveries, however, labour shortages are having an impact on the whole industry. Another issue many of you reported to me at the 1st Birthday event was a lack of availability of staff within premises, quite apart from any issues of supply. On discussing this it seems clear that while Coronavirus did have an effect on staffing, now furlough is coming to an end and most premises have opened, there are still insufficient staff to fill spaces available in many cases. Why is this? Admittedly, some staff have opted not to return from furlough even though their furlough has been brought to an

end. Many of the positions available in licensed premises in Scotland were filled by foreign workers and a huge number of them have gone home and either decided not to come back, if they already have a Right to Work in the UK, or are currently unable to come back due to restrictions. While there is question under Coronavirus restrictions of whether a country is on a red, amber or green list, a bigger issue is Brexit and the restriction of movement of workers across borders. So is there a solution and is this solution a workable one? Cue our employment expert, Graham Millar. Graham confirms that, to introduce foreign workers into the UK from any country out with the UK, they will now require them to have either an existing right to work or require visa sponsorship. Visa sponsorship can be very expensive. There are companies that can assist the licensed trade and other businesses in setting up such visa sponsorship schemes but there is a cost and it cannot be achieved overnight. Such a scheme will require financial investment from the employer. Each visa has to be individually sponsored and there will be a cost per each employee. There is also a huge amount of paperwork to go through for each applicant which will incur additional admin costs to the business in terms of support, potentially both internal and external to the business. The process is not guaranteed as employers must be able to persuade the authorities that it is a necessary process. In the first instance any employer wishing to sponsor incoming foreign workers needs to be able to show that they have tried to obtain employees for the same job from the currently available workforce within the UK. This is easier to show if the role is a very specialised one, such as a specific type of cooking where only certain chefs are qualified or trained to

do. Outside of that, potential employers of foreign workers in Scotland would need to be able to show that they had tried to take on workers already within the UK with the right to work in place. To do that they would have to show they have advertised reasonably extensively and the results of that advertising. Another issue is not just the availability of work force but whether the workforce which is currently available is prepared to carry out the work. Many of you indicated to me that you are struggling to secure staff to carry out KP and back of house roles as these are less popular than visible, front of house roles. You also said that wages are a massive consideration for employees with many seeking at least Living Wage or above Minimum Wage. If licensed trade employers do find they have to pay higher wages to secure and retain staff, one of the ways to protect yourself is to ensure your contracts are up to date and provide as much scope to retain those employees as possible. Measures can be put in contracts for notice periods and for financial penalties if employees do not give you notice, avoiding you being left in the lurch. You can also include requirements for employees to repay training costs if they leave within a certain period of time after the training. As the licensed trade have such a high standard of training and require to train all staff for 2 hours as well as any personal licence training, this can be an advantage in retaining staff. There are other ways to ensure staff stay with you by being a good operator and if you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact Jo Millar, Licensing or Graham Millar, Employment at Gilson Gray through our email, ontrade@gilsongray.co.uk

With most of the Covid restrictions in Scotland all but lifted, as the country moves beyond the level zero rules, we see physical distancing rules and the limits on gatherings have all but been removed with masks being the only requirement as venues reopen around the country. Companies and organisations will, now more than ever, help protect their staff, customers and families.

as Theatres, Concert Halls, Arenas, Live Music Venues, Nightclubs, Conference Venues, Wedding Venues and more.

So what do you do when you have to protect nearly 400 of Scotland’s Hospitality Representatives at the largest Indoor Event in 2021?

Our Biosecurity System features advanced UV Nonfiltered Air Sanifiers, utilising NASA technology, with a ‘Photo Catalytic Oxidisation Power Pack’ which is proven to reduce Airborne Microorganisms to undetectable within 10 minutes of activation.

You Go Beyond. Saturday, the 14th of August, saw the biggest single indoor event since the relaxation of restrictions in Scotland hosted by OnTrade Scotland. The Event in association with Top Gun Media, was held in the Double Tree by Hilton on Glasgow’s Cambridge Street and had over 400 representatives (party animals) of the Hospitality Industry in Scotland. The team at EventCair, part of Insite Specialist Services, a division of Insite Group, were approached by Justin Wingate, Director at TopGun Media, regarding our unique EventCair Biosecurity System in providing protection and peace of mind for their guests, staff, and their families at a time when we are slowly coming out of Lockdown. EventCair from Insite Specialist Services is an innovative new system that provides continuous protection, 24/7, 365 days of the year of Air and Surfaces within any indoor event space such

The system is further enhanced by applying BioTouch, EventCair’s unique Permanent Non-Toxic Antimicrobial Solution approved by EPA and the CDC, to ANY Hard or Soft Surfaces and High Touch Point Areas offering a Biosecurity System like no other. Justin Wingate of TopGun Media said about EventCair: ‘The reason we were keen to engage with Insite Specialist Services and their EventCAIR solution was to give our guests peace of mind that we had their safety at the forefront of our minds. We looked into the technology behind it & it’s ease of use as well as the benefits it provides extensively & it was a no brainer for us. There has been a lot of nervousness & negativity across hospitality over the last 12 months & one of the main reasons in us hosting the 1st Birthday Bash in association with Go Radio &

30 ontradescotland.co.uk


The BEN was to inspire other venues across hospitality & the brands in what could be achieved in a positive way whilst giving guests the upmost safety & protection. Insite Specialist Services were able to design a bespoke solution for our Venue which can be either a temporary or permanent installation. Their Biotouch surface protection is an application that continues well after we have packed up and gone from which the Venue can benefit longterm and the airsanifiers create a safer, healthier atmosphere. We need to provide Peace of Mind and allow guests to relax… EventCAIR allowed us to do just that. We would encourage venues across hospitality to look into the EventCAIR solution as we did and I’m sure you will find it a no brainer as we did.’ More and more organisations are working with Insite Specialist Services on ‘Going Beyond’ their Duty of Care and so far the NHS, Blood Transfusion Scotland, Enable Scotland, Citizens Advice Bureau, Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, Skene Group, Red Onion (John Quigley’s Restaurant, NICE Group, Tiki Bar, among many others, are already enjoying the benefits of their Biosecurity System. Gordon Bruce, founder of Insite Specialist Services said: ‘We are clearly delighted to be involved in the largest indoor Event since the restrictions have been lifted. There are many years of research and development gone into what we do in creating Safer, Healthier Indoor Environments.

EventCair is one of many of our Biosecurity Systems that we have been developing since 2017 that continuously maintain clean air and protect all surfaces removing pathogens and microbes including Viruses (coronaviruses) , bacteria, allergens, as well as reducing CO2. As for the Event itself, it was amazing to see people finally relax, enjoy themselves and finally let their hair down in the Safest Environment possible. Party On.’ To find out more about how Insite Specialist Services Biosecurity System can keep you OPEN and keep, your Employees, Customers and Families Safe and Protected get in touch with Gordon Bruce at gordon.bruce@ insitespecialistservices.co.uk or call him on 0141 611 7888. www.insite-group.co.uk/specialist-services Summary of our Biosecurity System • Specifically designed for infection prevention • Made in Scotland • Removes up to 99.999% of viruses (including Covid-19), bacteria, etc • Reduces CO2 by up to 40% • Continuous protection for air & surfaces • Technology by NASA, components approved by the CDC and EPA • Non-toxic and harmless to humans • Reduces risk – duty of care • Provides “peace of mind”
