Blog: I wasn't going to write this one but..

Catherine Sleep | 2 September 2005

I hesitated to do anything about the offers of help that have come in from the food industry following the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina. It's not directly business related, I thought, in my cynical way. And I was concerned that it would be unfair to report one company's offer without making sure that everybody's gets a mention and I couldn't be sure of doing that.

But there is, as the old cliche goes, an elephant in the room. The big news event is Katrina and its horrifying aftermath. In the long term it will make a difference to the food business around the world. But in the short term there is a need for immediate help. I've mentioned a few of the food companies which have contributed. To all the ones I haven't mentioned I apologise
