Support the Events Industry as they Support you at Home!By HOPP Team
The country might be on lockdown, but the events industry has come up with several ways to help clients to uplift their spirits at home. From creative cocktails to delivering delicious dishes, here’s how to support your favourite suppliers!
1. ORDER A DELIVERY
Some caterers have turned their kitchens into takeaway and doorstep deliveries. Here are some initiatives we like the sound of.
The Kochi Kitchen is doing mouth watering, delicious deliveries in London, Essex and Suffolk which have simple instructions and are suitable for freezing. The menus are vibrant and full of incredible flavours using seasonal, local produce and inspired by Kerala.

Caiger & Co’s innovative & delicious delivery menu includes fresh boxes of amazing produce and meals. Check out their NHS Special where all profit goes to make snacks and treats deliverable to NHS workers & the Easter Box which includes lunch and treats for the family. Their fruit and vegetables are all from the same farm in Sussex, the same farm in that that also uses their waste for compost!
