MCA journal February 2019

February 2019

This month’s edition of MCA delves into the sensitive subject of communicating allergen information and to what extent the sector should shoulder the responsibility of individual choice. We also feature the first column from MCA’s contributing editor Peter Martin, returning to the title he co-founded in 1996, as well as chronicling the quiet growth of the dessert café segment, profiling The Alchemist’s Simon Potts and introducing a new feature on key markets for international growth.
