The company, which has more than 50 pubs, hotels, inns and shops throughout East Anglia, said it was sharing packs of food and drinks with team members, neighbours and community groups during this “challenging time”.

Andy Wood, chief executive, said: “Any perishable items or short dated stock has either been cooked, sorted, organised or distributed.

“We have incredible teams in our business who continually think about how they can help others first, it is inspiring.

“We have been playing an active part in our communities for over 148 years, it is so important to us now and will be in the future.”

This decision comes as Adnams sites across the region have been closed as a result of coronavirus.

Already, the company has said it will help the University of East Anglia by providing alcohol to make hand sanitiser for the NHS and social care workers.
