Brewing giant DB Breweries says it will inject $1 million into the country's hospitality industry ravaged by Covid-19 and the closure of venues.

The Auckland-based brewer has launched a support package to help bars and other hospitality venues get back on their feet once bars and night clubs are permitted to re-open from Thursday under the latest Government rules.

Dubbed 'Back Your Bar', DB Breweries has created a free online platform for operators to access advice and practical support on how to operate in the Covid-19 climate, along with arranging stock bundles worth $2m for its customers and a marketing campaign to encourage Kiwis to get out and spending again.

Julie White, chief operating officer at Hospitality NZ, joined Andrew Dickens to discuss how the scheme would work and why it's really welcome by the industry.
