MEET STEPHEN MINALL
There are few people in the hospitality or retail industry who are more closely aligned with current food trends. Stephen writes for trade journals, presents at retail consortiums in the UK & Europe, and has been seen on BBC News as a leading expert in food related stories.
Recent hot topics have included the rise in Home Delivery, Dark Kitchens and Takeaway/Grab & Go concepts - and latest trends in ready meals and boxed meal solutions are impacting sales in Retail & hospitality.
Stephen not only guides and advises, but he is an entrepreneur who has his own extensive experience within retail and foodservice operations. He created the Wrapid brand of fast food outlets that he grew to 25 sites at home and abroad. As one of the owners of Moving Food, a food market development agency working with retail and catering, he has helped to launched dozens of new food concepts into the UK including the likes of www.wowbutter.com (a no nut peanut butter!). His products can be found in locations such as Holland & Barrett and online /ecommerce stores in the UK.
His latest project is www.fdreviews.com to allow start ups & investors in food & drink brands to get early access to Industry Experts prior to launch.
Stephen judges the Foodservice Awards, The Cateys and the Quality Food Awards. He is also Chair of The Outlook Foundation helping Special Needs adults find their feet in the community of Brighton & Hove.
