We’ve spent the vast majority of our time over the past month covering how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the food business. Today, our editorial team is setting out to provide strategies that food businesses can implement right now to help navigate these unprecedented times.
We are hosting our first ever Virtual Strategies Summit, this one focusing on the coronavirus outbreak. We’ve brought in a ton of great speakers (see full list below) to talk about everything from legal considerations for restaurants, changes to the grocery store and food waste, and even where to find some hope in these dark times.
Because it’s all online, the whole event is appropriately social distanced. Plus, you’ll be able to ask questions of our experts, and like you, none of the participants have had the chance to cut their hair in the past month. We are definitely all in this boat together.
The event is free, and you can register and watch the sessions by going over to our CrowdCast page. It starts at 9 a.m. Pacific time. Hope to see you there.powered by Crowdcast
