What do M&B, Brakes, Gauchos and Reynolds have to say about rising food costs and the supply chain?

By Berenice, Wednesday 3 May 2017

Brexit, the general election, the falling pound, rising inflation and escalating food prices are impacting the supply chain and supplier/operator relationships. Are you prepared? An expert panel at the Arena Summer Event – including Mitchells & Butlers, Gauchos, Reynolds and Brakes – will explore the issues and how to turn them into opportunities to optimise your supply chain and work closer with your customers.

Make sure you attend to:

  • Understand the short- and long-term supply chain issues, the possible outcomes for operators and suppliers, and how best to support your customers
  • Optimise your supply chain to benefit you and your customers
  • Inflation, the falling pound and rising food prices. Understand why this is the biggest cause of concern for operators, how it will affect us all, and how we can help each other
  • Learn what the panellists at the forefront of the supply chain are doing in their businesses and how they are supporting their customers and suppliers
  • Ask questions of operators and suppliers to ensure you can drive your business and customer/supplier relationships forward
  • Find out the other global issues impacting food imports and exports – it’s not just Brexit!

The Arena Summer Event also includes a drinks reception and three-course lunch that will enable further discussion of the issues with fellow foodservice and hospitality professionals, plus an inspiring post-lunch address from Mark Fox, CEO, Bill’s Restaurants.
