Punch Taverns has launched Food Solutions, a scheme to promote hot food across its estate. Steve Schaffer, the company’s catering development manager said: "This is not about the premium dining and gastro pubs in the group, but rather the tenants that have come into the business with little or no food knowledge." Punch is presenting seven simple food packages through accredited suppliers, including 3663. These range through basic "toastabags" to paninis, pizzas and Indian meals. The company has also set up a consultancy service with Brakes.
