The debate will be broadcast live on the Footprint Channel on the 21st November at 10am, and will focus on the changing facets of the waste agenda across the hospitality and casual dining sectors in light of legislation, budget restrictions and consumer demands.


‘Waste: A Moving Brief’, the latest in a line of open access live web streams (webazines) from Footprint will kick off with an interview with WRAP director Richard Swannell who will be announcing some key new figures, followed by an interactive participant debate on waste, led by an expert panel with representatives from Spirit Pub Group, Nestle Professional, Copper Consultancy, Vegware and Pret A Manger.


The Footprint Channel offers an ongoing programme of free virtual events, aimed at senior professionals operating throughout the food supply chain. Fully interactive and open to all, each stream allows time-strapped executives to take part in industry thought leadership and initiatives from the comfort and convenience of their desk.


Speaking about the upcoming event Charles Miers, Managing Director of Footprint Forum, commented that previous success lay in the fact that they offered an ‘in-office’ solution to the usual roundtable-style events so common in the sector:


“There is huge value in getting key thought leaders together, in one room, around one table to discuss a key topic and reach an industry-wide consensus on action.

“That said, it’s really not that realistic to expect that senior professionals are really going to have the time to physically attend an industry event very often; they simply don’t have the time!


“The beauty of our live debates is that there is no need to even leave your office to get involved, and yet you can still play a huge part by using the interactive features to ask, and even answer, questions of the panel and others participating.”


Anyone interested in the debate can register free and take part live. For those unable to join on the day the full interview and panel debate will be recorded and available live on the Footprint Channel for six months. A full report will also be made available via Footprint Forum social media channels.
