The Food Service sector – Today & Tomorrow

The past week has been a time of unprecedented change for the UK’s Foodservice operators as the UK Government announced tighter social distancing guidelines that meant dine-in spaces had to close. Takeaway and delivery are still allowed but the processes involved in providing these services raise concerns for the wellbeing of staff and customers. At the same time, however, the UK Government also launched a substantial support package offering a safety net to affected businesses, including those in the hospitality sector.

Will this be enough to save the sector in the long-term? With our invited experts we look at how foodservice operators are coping with the today’s unprecedented situation, and what this might mean for tomorrow’s hospitality sector.

Watch and listen, and be inspired.
