Paying Director Pauliina Smolander says that these application processes, built on a very fast schedule in the spring, have proven to work and make applying easy. Since then, co-operation between various catering business operators and companies has worked smoothly. It can also be seen as a positive fact that the spring did not try all the companies in the catering industry as expected. It seems that the industry has been able to both adjust its operations and develop new business so that the restriction period everywhere did not reduce sales as expected, Smolander states.
