Join us at the Brigade Bar + Kitchen, London Bridge, for a fantastic panel discussion, hosted by Simon Boyle, Founder, Beyond Food Foundation and The Brigade Bar + Kitchen, and featuring industry leaders including Ronan Harte, CEO, BaxterStorey, to discuss the current labour shortages affecting the industry, how companies are currently tackling the crisis and how working with charities such as Beyond Food could also be a potential solution.
In the UK, the foodservice and hospitality sector and its supply chain are experiencing rising labour shortages with job vacancies at their highest levels since records began. According to CGA’s latest Business Confidence Survey, one in six (16%) hospitality jobs currently lie vacant with 96% of business leaders now envisaging shortages in either front or back of house roles. This is placing huge pressure on the sector with shortages covering not only the full breadth of hospitality but also the supply chain.
