#51: The sensible approach

vaughn2nd January 2021 at 3:15pm

This issue is about sustainable, resilient business models in restaurants and the food industry. It summarises the substance of a panel I put together with Nick Kokonas from Tock/Alinea, Matt Jozwiak from Rethink Food, and Mike Harrison and Ben Chapman from Super 8.

The main insight is that a risk mindset—being unwilling to embrace uncertainty—is the main obstacle to businesses combining realistic imagination and a long-term view in ways that allow them to become more sustainable and resilient.
