In this week’s episode of Market Talk, Seamus O’Donnell, culinary director of The Alchemist, and Scott Jones, sales and key account director for the UK and Ireland at True Refrigeration, join us for a conversation about how their businesses have adapted to the new challenges facing all tiers of the hospitality market.
After recharging his batteries during the lockdown, Mr O’Donnell has been raring to get back behind the pass and work with his team again. He outlines his equipment mantra as the chain looks to pick up from where it left off in March and reveals why the timing of a forthcoming new restaurant is certain to keep staff on their toes!
Mr Jones, meanwhile, reflects on what life has been like for a supplier during the last few months and explains why some of the strategic decisions True has made in the UK have given it the strongest chance of recovery. He also discusses how the brand has enhanced its product portfolio to meet the current constraints operators face as they reopen.
