Beanstalk Global Goes Live with Key Foodservice Broadcast

“The Impact of Lockdown 2.0”

In association with Peter Backman and “Powered” by Total Produce Foodservice.

Recent UK trade headlines have been stark…..

  • “How can city centre restaurants survive the pandemic?”
  • “Marcus Rashford and the caterers feeding vulnerable schoolchildren”
  • “The industry asks: where is our minister for hospitality?”
  • “‘Worst of the crisis behind us’ says Accor CEO, but cost control still critical”

But the opportunities that are being presented to those businesses and individuals who can innovative and create new routes to market in Foodservice are proving to be significant.

In this important Broadcast we get down into the detail and future positives for the Foodservice sectors with renowned industry expert Peter Backman with views from other key industry leaders as well as transmitting live from a key Total Produce UK facility. 

Peter is an expert commentator on the structure and dynamics of the foodservice sector and its supply chain, in the UK and internationally.  He has also been involved, as a researcher and consultant within the sector, for over 30 years blending his knowledge with a deep understanding of the trends, key players and challenges of organisations with an interest in foodservice.

We also had two other industry experts on the Broadcast being Tony Reynolds the Managing Director of The Reynolds Group and James Lipscombe the CEO of The Chesterford Group both who are seen as key leaders in their field. And we went live on a pre-recorded basis to discuss what Ernie Miller, Key Account and Customer Liaison Manager for the Mark Murphy business in Edinburgh, which is part of the Total Produce Group is seeing on the ground.
