Much is made of the need to encourage more young people into the grocery industry.
One area still under-represented, however, is fresh produce. This was the motivation for the launch of Fresh Inspirations, which took place near Cambridge at the end of January. It was encouraging to see more than 130 delegates, made up of young, aspiring and developing managers, trainees and students - representing every stage of the supply chain.
