Hennessy has announced a recovery initiative for the Australian hospitality industry to help on-premise staff impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Partnering directly with local businesses, Hennessy will provide immediate cash relief to struggling businesses nationally by purchasing vouchers from venues across Australia. These vouchers will be provided to frontline hospitality workers or event staff who have lost income due to venue closures and event cancellations across the country.
“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating for the hospitality industry,” said Andrew McLaren, Managing Director, Moet Hennessy Australia & New Zealand.
“Even though we are now seeing venues re-open, albeit with restricted operational guidelines, the effects for many venues and individuals will unfortunately be long lasting.
“The on-premise community has remarkable spirit and resilience and is never shy in coming together in support of others in a time of need. Now is the time where they need our support and we hope that this initiative can assist in aiding their recovery.”
Hospitality workers who have been impacted by reduced hours or loss of wage can register for a $50 meal voucher at a participating venue by visiting www.hennessyforhospo.com.au. Thousands of vouchers, plus Hennessy product, and cash support has been made available to venues and impacted individuals as part of a wider industry support initiative, amounting to close to $200,000 support from Hennessy in Australia.
