Pret A Manger’s food and coffee director, Guy Meakin, has been unveiled as the 60th and final speaker for the forthcoming Lunch! show.
He will be appearing in his first live interview at the show on the opening day, talking about his new role at the business and what’s next for the much-admired Pret brand.
With more than a decade of foodservice and retail experience, including senior roles with Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s prior to joining Pret as its head of buying in 2017, he will provide valuable insight into the trends shaping Pret’s business.
“Lunch! is our industry show and I’m looking forward to speaking there, seeing the new products launching this year, and being inspired by the best and most innovative sector in food,” said Mr Meakin.
His session will be held in Keynote Theatre 1 at 1.15pm on Thursday 19 September. The show takes place at London ExCel and will feature speakers from a number of top chains in the food-to-go sector including Greggs, Starbucks, Caffe Nero and Costa.
