Everyone wants the food choices to feel bountiful and exciting. The real skill is in ensuring there’s minimal wastage after the event. Hickory continues to advise and work collaboratively with venues on sustainability best practices, and we’re pushing ourselves each year to do more. Recently, we have undertaken research, with event owners, buyers and customers which will take a closer look at the world of dietary preferences in a bid to better inform future food choices.
