There are a series of webinars covering topics including Veganuary, mental health & staff wellbeing as well as calorie labelling changes.
Alongside 22 supplier stands, including Nestlé, Unilever, Valeo Snackfoods and Heinz, there will also be six individual Brakes stands dedicated to hospitality, food to go, care and hospitals, new food, education and winter menu.
All the virtual stands will offer products to help caterers maximise the quality and flavour of their offer whilst assisting them to reduce costs and labour. These products will be complemented by insights into food trends, downloadable resources and video inspiration.
Among the webinars will be a session on the #FairKitchens movement which is striving to make the industry a fairer, more inclusive and happier place to work; an insight into how caterers can make Veganuary a lasting opportunity and practical solutions for the new calorie labelling legislation that comes into effect in April 2022 from Nutritics.
Leon French, customer marketing director at Brakes, 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.”
The Brakes Winter Food Festival now has a filter that will allow users to view specific products of interest such as vegan, vegetarian and plant-based items. Plus, there’s a chance to win £500 worth of Brakes vouchers by taking part in the event prize draw.
