Last week, Bidvest Foodservice announced that it is to change its name to Bidfood. It’s chief executive, Andrew Selley, who is also the chairman of the Federation of Wholesale Distributors, will address foodservice and hospitality industry colleagues at the Arena Savoy Lecture 2017 on Monday 20 March at The Savoy, London.

Bidvest Foodservice has been re-energised and challenged.  One of the UK’s leading foodservice providers, its impact is strong in all sectors and growing. The driving force for change, Andrew will give an insight into the reorganisation and cultural change that have transformed Bidvest Foodservice into an engaged, insight-led business that moves ever closer to its customers as it climbs a steep growth curve. He will discuss Bidvest Foodservice’s vision and strategy, and how the wholesale sector and wider industry need to get future fit to face the challenges presented by key primary issues, including Brexit and sustainability.

As Brexit continues to dominate the political and economic landscape, a panel discussion, in association with the British Hospitality Association, will consider the specific challenges and opportunities that Brexit will present for the foodservice and hospitality industry.

And, that's not all! As well as insight and opinion from influential industry figures, Arena’s esteemed Savoy Lecture offers an excellent opportunity to engage with professionals from across the foodservice and hospitality industry.
