10 Dec 2020
Stephen Forster, chair of LACA, has been named as one of the top 20 ‘most influential’ according to Public Sector Catering Magazine.

Every year Public Sector Catering magazine convenes a panel of industry experts to draw up an annual list of the people who are driving the agenda on issues such as obesity, sustainability, health and wellbeing, malnutrition, Brexit, the national living wage and much more.

Who are the most influential people working in the industry that feeds schoolchildren, students, hospital patients, care home residents, prisoners and people in the UK military?

Forster has guided LACA through Covid-19 lockdowns with a series of webinars and online commentaries to keep members informed about Government policy on schools as well as health and safety advice.

Lindsay Graham poverty & inequality commissioner of Scotland, Anna Taylor director of the Food Foundation and Henry Dimbleby independent lead of the National Food Strategy also made the list.
