Millstream Management Services teams up with Brakes Food service to provide vital supplies to its Owners

22nd April 2020

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Millstream Management Services has formed a new partnership with wholesale distribution company Brakes to provide weekly deliveries to its national network of retirement developments. The new service will help to ensure all apartment Owners have easy access to the essential supplies they need at this time.


Brakes, which normally supplies the catering industry in the UK, is able to deliver a wide range of food, drink and other essential items which apartment Owners could otherwise find it difficult to purchase while self-isolating.


Lodge Managers at each development will be able to place orders on behalf of their Owners, and the supplies will arrive in one weekly delivery which can then be dropped at Owners’ doors by the Lodge Manager. This process will help reduce footfall within each development and improve the strict social distancing measures that are already in place.


Millstream’s Business Development Manager Emma McCarthy said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Brakes to deliver this vital service, and we’re grateful for their help in providing regular supplies to keep our Owners safe and well in their apartments at this time.”


Brakes’ Senior New Business Partner Paul Sena added: “As the UK’s leading foodservice wholesaler, we have recently launched a number of consumer initiatives, for example Call and Collect from our depots, aimed at helping people access the food they need in these challenging times.  Our partnership with Millstream Management Services is another great example of how Brakes is working to ensure that we get essential products to those who need them.”
