Blog: Dean BestHopping off for Easter

Dean Best | 18 April 2019

Easter is almost upon us and just-food will be closed from tomorrow, over the weekend and Easter Monday.

We'll be back on Tuesday, with our FUTURES service reporting on what food companies need to consider when selling to Generation Z.

Our insights page will also next week feature the latest missive from Victor Martino, who is looking at the development of regenerative agriculture in the US and the consumer products and market category emerging from that part of the supply chain.

Deputy editor Andy Coyne will run an in-depth feature targeted at the SMEs in our readership, setting out how consultants and M&A advisers believe smaller firms looking to sell should best prepare their businesses for takeover.

And Andy is with Unilever's UK foods business on Thursday as it gives an update on its strategy and innovation.

With that, for those away from work, have a good break. Try not to eat too many eggs.
