Blog: Dean BestA spring break for just-food

Dean Best | 29 May 2016

The UK is enjoying its annual spring bank holiday on Monday (30 May), so there won't be a full service from just-food.

In the meantime, you can catch up on some of the content published in recent days, including the first part of our interview with Daniel Lubetzky, the founder and CEO of Kind LLC, who reflects on the US Food and Drug Administration's U-turn over the snacks maker's labelling.

"I'm very much driven by justice and I couldn't let that issue go," Lubetzky told us

Last week, our interview pages also featured the Round Table on Responsible Soy, the body driving the cultivation and sourcing of more sustainable soy, and a chat with the global marketing director for Danone kids yoghurt brand Danonino.
.

We'll be back raring to go on Tuesday, when we welcome experienced business-to-business journalist John Shepherd, who is covering just-food news editor Hannah Abdulla while she is on maternity leave.
