How can suppliers tap into the fast growing foodservice market? What are the big consumer trends and what business models should suppliers adopt to best serve them? And how does working with foodservice operators differ from working with food retailers?
These issues will be debated at a conference organised by The Grocer and sister division Martin Information next month.
The Future for Retail and Foodservice - The Supplier Story brings together the food business to discuss buying, opportunities and best practice.
Speakers include Calum Ross, MD of Unilever Foodsolutions; Dean McKenna, head of supply chain at McDonald’s; Christian Rose, food director at The Spirit Group; and Stephen Bates, research manager at Brakes.
The Future Foundation, Euromonitor and ICS Associates will provide insights while top chef Paul Heathcote will close the conference by looking at the future of food.
The conference takes place on November 16 at The Carlton Tower in London. For details contact Elizabeth Brown on 01293 867612 or e-mail elizabeth.brown@william-reed.co.uk
