And David Nuttall, a non-executive director of The University Caterers Organisation (TUCO) and catering manager at Harper Adams University, will be offering the perspective of the higher education sector.

They will identify some of the key issues facing public sector caterers and the opportunities and benefits of working more collaboratively.

Billed as a ‘free event’ and aiming to showcase ‘all things food and catering’, it will be held at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre at Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium.

It is aimed at all caterers, chief executives, political figures, dieticians and public health leaders who have an interest in public sector catering across schools, hospitals, care homes, prisons, universities or the Ministry of Defence.

It will give members of the foodservice industry the opportunity to discover the latest products and innovations for the public sector and get a feel for the trends shaping the market into 2019 and beyond, in addition to the chance to meet and network with some of the UK’s largest suppliers and manufacturers within the sector.
