Senior executives from some of the country’s leading food and drink producers recently joined together at the award-winning Harts Hotel in Nottingham to hear from Rob Collins, Managing Director of Waitrose & Partners.
The exclusive food and drink sector dinner was hosted by leading law firm and food sector specialists Geldards LLP, with JLT Specialty and Alantra Corporate Finance.
Rob gave his insight on a wide range of subjects relating to the sector, including the current state and future of the industry, the re-brand of Waitrose to Waitrose & Partners and their ethical initiatives, consumer behaviour in the food sector and how this has the potential to change in the future.
The passion Rob demonstrated for food and for his customers was clear, with his insights and experience generating many questions and an interesting and high-level debate amongst the attendees.
Peter Seary, Corporate Partner and head of the food sector team at Geldards said:
“It was great to gather together such an influential list of industry experts to hear Rob’s insights into the food sector and to discuss the challenges the future holds. We are extremely grateful to Rob for taking the time out of his busy schedule to speak with us and join us on such an enjoyable evening, and to be able to connect with and meet likeminded people within the industry.
“Thank you to Simon Peacock from Alantra Corporate Finance and Jon Miller of JLT Speciality for co-hosting the event alongside Geldards.”
