This month’s edition of MCA looks at the growing importance of healthier eating and ask whether the industry is doing enough to satisfy consumer demands. We also delve into the different ways operators are seeking growth in a challenging market, which increasingly means partnering with outside specialists, whether that is in retail, contract catering or travel hubs. This edition also includes features on the different way operators are ensuring the wellbeing of their staff, the latest developments in the delivery market, and profiles of Bill’s founder Bill Collison, Tonkotsu and East Coast Concepts.
