The government presented, Thursday, January 14, new aid for suppliers in sectors in difficulty. A distributor of drinks from La Rochelle, which normally supplies restaurants, bars, hotels or festivals, will be able to take advantage of this. All are at a standstill, and the boss’s concern is growing. “This big part of our activity related to events, sport or festivals, it is a big uncertainty. Even if we reopen on April 1 or May 1, what will happen this summer?“asks Fabrice Gimenez.
The company now only delivers nursing homes, and has lost 40% of its turnover. 70 employees are on partial unemployment. In the almost deserted warehouse, part of the stocks expire. “In three months, 50% of what you see there will be outdated“, he launches to journalists from France Televisions. Until then, he had no access to the solidarity fund.
All suppliers in administratively closed sectors, such as wholesalers, roasters or laundries, are now concerned. “All of these companies will now be compensated, from December 1, 2020, when they lose at least 70% of their turnover, they will receive 20% of their turnover recorded in 2019 with a maximum of 200,000 euros per month“, specifies David Boéri on the set of France 3.
