Building A Sustainable Future in partnership with Food Service Circle - 8.30am Thursday 17 December

By Berenice, Monday 14 December 2020

As the UK waits for the new tier announcements later this week, never has it been more important to maintain and build upon those key industry relationships as we move forward into 2021. Arena prides itself on creating environments to facilitate conversation by bringing together its members and the wider industry. We're delighted to host our next virtual event in partnership with Food Service Circle – the support network created for foodservice and contract catering professionals to help those impacted by Covid-19.


On the morning of Thursday 17 December 2020, we are delighted to bring together Wendy Bartlett, Founder, Bartlett Mitchell; Mark Davies, Managing Director, ISS UK Foodservice and David Mulcahy, Culinary Ambassador, Sodexo UK & Ireland who will share their knowledge, experience and expertise.

Wendy, one of the co-founders of Food Service Circle, will discuss how and why Food Service Circle was formed, the importance of the support network and what they have achieved in such a short space of time.  Wendy will then be joined by Mark and David to discuss the all-important topic of how suppliers, foodservice operators and the wider industry can work together to build an industry fit for the future, creating exciting employment opportunities and stronger relationships. 

The discussion will be hosted by well-known industry editor, Jane Renton who has extensive media and communication experience.

Why Attend?

The discussion will provide you with ideas and shared knowledge to take back to your own businesses, providing opportunities to build relationships with your customers and suppliers to ensure your business is fit for the future going forward into 2021 and beyond.

There will also be the opportunity to join the conversation and ask questions to the panelists in this live event too.

Who is it for?

If you work in the foodservice and hospitality industry as either a supplier or operator, this virtual event is for you. 


We look forward to you joining us for what will be a highly valuable discussion. If you have any questions, please contact Lorraine Wood by email or on 07803 853618.
