This past week we have been developing new services to be extended and announced shortly covering social media, finance & fundraising & contract manufacturing support. We are also discussing exciting new supply opportunities for M&S. Watch this space!

 Ahead of the Curve: Planning for the future:

This week we attended a great leadership and management session with the Natwest accelerator. In addition, we’ve been giving advice to pre-revenue brands and attended the superb Virgin Start Up, event at We Work Tower Bridge hosted by Alex Chisnall which featured talks and discussions with several exciting challenger brands.

We’ve continued interviewing this week as we look to further grow the Visionary team and keep up with the demands of our growing business. Staying ahead of the curve and solid strategic planning for our future is always of importance to us.

LACA Conference in Birmingham

 The Visionary Foodservice division have had a great week at the LACA conference in Birmingham. We have showcased one of our clients and their Gluten Free products to the world of education catering. On top of this it was great to network with industry colleagues and share best practice on how to make catering in this sector a success. 

We have continued to drive a number of our brands in their Bidfood Summer Promos as we entered week two of this exciting event. It has also been a productive week in working with start-ups to help them gain visibility in the marketplace.
