Blog: Andy CoyneSeason's greetings from just-food

Andy Coyne | 22 December 2017

On behalf of everyone at just-food I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

It has been a busy and momentous year in the global food industry and, if the sudden flurry of M&A activity in recent days is any guide, 2018 will be much the same.

Overarching issues such as Brexit and US trade deal policy will remain crucial to the sector's future but, on an everyday basis, we will surely be writing more and more about product launches based on innovation and health consciousness and big food businesses re-positioning themselves in a fast changing market.

This isn't the time to detain you further, so I'll simply repeat the greeting at the top of this note and wish you and your families a very happy festive period.

We'll be closed from lunchtime today (22 December) until first thing on Tuesday 2 January.

In the meantime, if you need a further just-food 'fix', you can read our take on the food industry of 2018 hot issues here.
