June 2019

This month’s print edition of MCA leads on the battle of the delivery aggregators, as Deliveroo wins the backing of Amazon and declares its intention to become the “definitive food company”. We also examine what Uber Eats and Just Eat have been doing to stay competitive. Contributing editor Peter Martin makes the case that there’s no disgrace in getting wrong, in the wake of the Jamie Oliver collapse, while Dom Walsh celebrates Phil Urban’s record at M&B. Meanwhile we look into the viability of a four-day week, the impact of late-night levies, and discuss the biggest developments in technology at a roundtable event sponsored by Punchh. Our featured interviews cover Vagabond’s next steps as it seeks to roll out its model across the UK, Deltic’s new concept Eden and The Athenian’s journey from street food stall to celebrated souvlaki specialists.
