Brakes Virtual Winter Food Festival, which is live until 14 January 2022, offers operators across foodservice a range of practical ideas and insights to support them in navigating the challenges of the festive season, and to make the most of Veganuary opportunities for the new year.
At the heart of the Winter Festival is a series of webinars covering topics such as Veganuary, mental health and staff wellbeing, and upcoming calorie labelling on menus legislation changes created in conjunction with leading foodservice organisations including Veganuary, #FairKitchens, Unilever and Nutritics.
Leon French, Brakes' customer marketing director, said: "At Brakes we're passionate about the food we sell, and about being the chef's hidden partner, providing them with the products that make running their kitchen that little bit easier, but that is only a part of what we do to support our customers. The Winter Food Festival brings together helpful guidance, support, and insights, as well as award-winning new food, to help operators plan for the key occasions over the coming weeks and months."
Alongside 22 supplier stands, including Nestlé, Unilever, Valeo Snackfoods and Heinz, there are also six individual Brakes stands dedicated to hospitality, food to go, care and hospitals, new food, education, and winter menus.
The new look festival website includes a simplified home page with a 'What's On' webinar guide, improved mobile experience, and a filter for visitors to view specific products of interest such as vegan, vegetarian, and plant-based items.
There's will also be the chance to win £500 worth of Brakes vouchers by taking part in the event prize draw. For more information click here
