Sharing food & drink supply chain knowledge and experience with like-minded people
As a restaurateur, from the moment my customers walk through the door, their overall experience should be as outstanding as Pervin, my team and I can make it. And as a chef, good food is central to everything I do. Café Spice Namaste has been in business for 21 years, which hopefully means we are doing something right, including how we source our food.
How we source our food is an opportunity to differentiate our menu, it is also a complex task.
Over the many years we have been in business we have seen the options multiply, and here’s a few we face…
- Which ingredients?
- Where to source from/through?
- Locality of suppliers, especially for fresh produce.
- Balancing our buying priorities, sustainability, provenance, price, taste.
- Catering for vegetarians, vegans, people with food allergies and intolerances.
- Traceability, are there GMO’s in the food supply chain?
To mention but a few.
Like dealing with most issues, sharing knowledge and experience with like-minded people is one of the best ways of gaining more information to enable taking better decisions.
So, in association with Hospitality & Catering News, Pervin and I are hosting the Hospitality & Catering Supply Chain Roundtable 2017. Taking place on Tuesday 25th April 2017 at Café Spice Namaste.
To set the agenda on the day we have prepared a SHORT SURVEY that will take 3-5 minutes to complete, please do so adding your experience to the day’s discussions and debates.
If you would like to take part and attend THE ROUND TABLE it takes place on 25 April at Café Spice Namaste, from 10am – 1.00pm. We then continue the conversation while enjoying lunch together. The Café Spice Namaste team will be serving a menu including ‘sustainable’ Norwegian Seafood.
There is no cost to attend and we are selecting guests from their completed survey results. Please indicate in the survey if you would like to be invited to attend and take part.
All who complete the survey will receive a full report on the survey results and the roundtable discussions.
All who request to attend will be replied to personally but we cannot guarantee any places, so please respond as soon as possible. Guests will receive an invitation by post to bring with them on the day.
I sincerely hope you will take part in the survey and be interested in attending our roundtable.
