Blog: Dean BestWhile just-food is closed over Easter...

Dean Best | 24 March 2016

just-food is closed tomorrow and on Monday for the Easter holidays but there's plenty of key news and insight from this week for you to digest.

Alongside the Premier Foods plc takeover saga this week, we've been following the flurry of US companies announcing plans to label foods on sale domestically containing genetically-modified ingredients.

You can also read the two-part interview with John Haugen, the head of General Mills' investment arm 301 Inc., here.

This week, we also published an interview with US group Boulder Brands from the Expo West trade show earlier this month.

Next week, expect to see our coverage from the Consumer Analyst Group Europe investment conference, where Glanbia, Danone, Tyson Foods and McDonald's (but, in the end, not Premier) were among the companies discussing their performance and outlook with Europe's investment community.

For those marking it, have a good Easter break.
