Powering foodservice decision making with insight, data & consultancy.


Combining decades of hospitality experience with evidence and knowledge, my expertise enables people, from investors to product innovators, to make strategic, commercial decisions in the sector.



Investing time in collecting, processing and analysing data sits at the core of my business. From numbers to people, companies and operating models, I examine the whole landscape. As well as my proprietary foodservice data, I also partnered with Huq Industries on The Huq Index which measures daily consumer footfall in UK restaurants and pubs.


Think Pieces

Discussing the issues and enabling understanding.  From ‘Delivery the Disruptor’ to bespoke pieces for clients, my white papers provide the basis for discussion and strategy creation.



My reports provide the facts, insights and projections on the sector.  I provide custom reports for clients, as well as Weekly and Quarterly Briefing Reports of latest news from across the sector, and Ones to Watch which highlights new growth opportunities for investors and suppliers, by identifying early stage, fast growing foodservice operator brands and concepts based on strict criteria that establish credentials for growth. I also collaborate with, and contribute to, reports from industry organisations such as Institute of Grocery Distribution (with whom I produced Eating In vs Dining Out), Federation of Wholesale Distributors and Foodservice Equipment Association.

Hospitality is all about people and shared experiences. As a founding member of Arena – the hospitality networking associaton, I am a great believer in bringing people together for learning, growth, ideas and knowledge-sharing.  



Designed for those who need to understand the complexities of the foodservice market and its supply chain, my education programme looks at the size, scope and relationships in what is fast becoming an ever-changing market.
