The extreme weather from drought to extremely wet conditions has made harvesting a challenge this year, with the affects felt on the potato crop. Further information is in our crop update which delves into the latest figures.
As we approach what will be an even bigger Veganuary and growing interest from both meat and non-meat eaters, it's clear that operators must cater for both tastes otherwise risk losing out. Our spotlights on the fast food industry and menu advice for pubs offers advice on how to capitalize on the trends that will continue to evolve.
According to recent reports optimism for the eating and drinking out market is growing from levels we saw in 2016 but with business costs rising, including the challenge of labour shortages, we aim to help bring menu options that still deliver on that crafted quality look and feel such as Sweet Potato Gratin or helping save you money with our Super Longs Fries.
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
