Michael Heaslip owns Food Stories Limited. The company owns a number of snacking brands that it sells to UK supermarkets such as Sainsbury's, Tesco and Aldi. It manufactures one of these brands in Asia and it is through this, that the company has developed good manufacturing contacts and has built trusted relationships in China. When the crisis of Covid-19 began to emerge, and given the shortage of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for key workers and the impact that was having with spiralling prices, Food Stories began to utilise its relationships in China and business connections in Northern Ireland, to supply vital PPE in the form of 3 ply Face Masks and gloves. It has been working around the clock to source large quantities of PPE that are now being used by key workers. Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis Food Stories has shipped over 3 million items of PPE to Northern Ireland and has been supplying key workers in the health care sector, public services, food production industry and retail. It is now extending supply to a range of businesses that will have a substantive requirement for PPE.
