Blog: Dean BestWe wish you a merry Christmas

Dean Best | 23 December 2016

Today (23 December) is just-food's last day before closing for Christmas. We'll return, raring to go on Tuesday 3 January - but of course there's been plenty of top-notch content that has gone live in recent days for you to get you teeth into before then.

This week, our analysis pages have looked into Danone's surprise sales warning and the continued pressure General Mills is seeing on its own top line.

On our interview pages, we chatted to UK popcorn maker Propercorn about its plans in the wake of the recent investment from the founders of UK smoothie brand Innocent. We also spoke to the CEO of Chaucer Food Group, the UK snack maker taken over by Japan's Nagatanien Holdings.

There's also our digest of the top ten most-read news, analysis, comment and interview articles on just-food in 2016 for you to peruse.

Thank you all for your support for just-food in 2016. The team here hopes you have a merry Christmas and a happy 2017.
