Premium spirits distributor pledges R2m to support bartenders and waiters
Pernord Ricard South Africa, which owns brands such as Jameson, Absolut and Chivas Regal, has pledged R2m to support bartenders and waiters affected by the national lockdown.
The initiative will benefit at least 1,000 workers.
Pernord Ricard South Africa sales director Werner Vosloo explains the process.
We have worked on an app with one of our suppliers called Snappy and through our customers we got details from all their waiters, we then send them a link to make them register on this app and then through this process they have the chance of earning R500 a week as part of our support to them.Werner Vosloo, Sales director - Pernord Ricard South Africa
At this stage we are hoping to have at least have a thousand barmen and waiters registered and I am very happy to say that as we stand we already have 784 barmen and waiters registered and obviously we will see how the process goes and see how many we can support.Werner Vosloo, Sales director - Pernord Ricard South Africa
We're working through the restaurant owners themselves because we would like to really make sure that it reaches the ones that need it.Werner Vosloo, Sales director - Pernord Ricard South Africa
