Top Track 250

During the pandemic, Glasgow-based G1 Group has donated grocery bundles to NHS workers and local foodbanks; provided packaged foods to charities, homeless shelters and key workers; and funded a local tailor to make scrubs for NHS staff. It also gave away 10,000 hot meals to the public from a Glasgow venue, aided by Rangers footballer Glenn Middleton, who volunteered to serve food. With venues shut, the majority of staff were furloughed and redundancies were announced in July. Under managing director and founder Stefan King, 57, the group recorded sales of £130.8m in 2019.
