First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has today announced (January 13) that customers will be restricted from entering takeaway and click and collect premises from Saturday 16 January.

Click and collect services will also be restricted to essential items only, and collection appointments will be staggered in order to avoid any queuing.

The NFRN was among 10 representative organisations from across Scotland’s Food and Drink industry that sent a joint letter to the Scottish Governments Rural Economy Secretary, Fergus Ewing MSP, requesting that food and drink takeaway services stay permitted.

The First Minister also announced that drinking alcohol outside will no longer be permitted in level four areas.

Speaking on today’s measures Ms Sturgeon said: “[They are] regrettable but necessary means to an end.”
