Julian Edwards announced as new chair of FCSI UK&I

The Foodservice Consultants Society International UK&I (FCSI UK&I) has announced Julian Edwards as its new chair.

Edwards, owner of consultancy GY5, has ambitious aims to drive FCSI's membership and bring new blood into the organisation. Edwards has already introduced some engaging activities for members, which include new monthly Taste-Learn-Connect Zoom events. Members are encouraged to connect and discuss the latest industry issues during these events.

Speaking about his appointment, Edwards said: "My main aim is to build on our membership, especially encouraging new consultants into the society. We would like to get some young blood into the organisation and that's more important than ever, especially with the pandemic creating many new ways of working.

"The world has changed a lot over the last 12 months, and we need to look at diversifying our method of operating and our new consultants need to reflect the modern times of foodservice. However, the expertise, knowledge and guidance of more experienced consultants remains as important as ever.

"FCSI is an important organisation which really supports consultants, and I can attribute a large part of my work from being a member."

At GY5, Edwards manages day-to-day operations and is responsible for managing projects for both single-school and multi-site contracts. He is also responsible for one of the leading Allergen Accreditation programmes for catering organisations UK wide.
