Free Time in Lockdown
With many of us around the world being in lockdown or a form of restricted movement due to Covid 19, millions of people are spending more time at home than ever before. Many of us are passing the time during lockdown by learning a new skill or hobby or developing an existing one – some are jumping on the TikTok bandwagon and learning new dances, or knitting, gardening, learning a language – or even running marathons on balconies!
One of the most popular hobbies during lockdown has been baking and cooking. Facebook and Instagram feeds are filled with photographs and recipes of all types of home baking from ‘cookies to bread‘ with ‘banana bread‘ being a particular favorite at the minute.
The PG Sweet Tooth
The PG team has not been exempt from the baking and cooking trend – ‘Deborah‘ in our procurement team has been baking up some ‘blueberry muffins’ and ‘lemon cake’ and ‘Leandro’ in our logistics team had a very successful first loaf of ‘banana bread’. ‘Vito‘ in our sales team has shown his Italian heritage by making pizza and sausage bread rolls and ‘Sarah‘ in our finance team made some old school sponge (a particular favourite of the UK!) and brownies. For me, I’ve turned my hand to making a ‘giant Jaffa Cake‘ and millionaire’s ‘shortbread’! Can you tell that we have a sweet tooth in the PG Team?
We all need Greaseproof – and PG can help!
This worldwide trend has seen consumers flocking to the shops for essential goods but also to replenish some key ingredients and products needed to try new recipes. Flour, sugar, yeast, eggs and, of course, greaseproof paper have been flying off the shelves. As a knock-on effect converters have seen a rise in demand for their products, as mills will for the greaseproof paper itself.
PG Paper can offer greaseproof paper, both bleached and natural in 35-50gsm, kit 1-9 suitable for heat up to 220 Celsius and for direct food contact.
With lockdown still in place in many countries around the world this high level of demand is expected to continue around the world and all parties involved in the supply chain will need to take a proactive approach to minimize disruption and ensure ongoing supply to consumers.
Get in touch with PG today to see how we can support your supply chain for greaseproof paper or other products during Covid.
And before we go, we thought we’d share Leandro’s Banana Bread recipe – enjoy!
