Welcome to our March 2021 issue
Resilience, frustration and optimism are the key themes of Hospitality Business this month as we negotiate our way yet again through Alert Level changes. Our features on building resilience into your operations through the use of smart technology and reassessing the advantages of pre-prepared food, provide timely food for thought.
We travel to Queenstown to talk to Mayor Jim Boult about his plea for Kiwis to see the alpine resort’s inhabitants as part of the ‘team of 5 million’ i.e. we are all in this together. And in the Coromandel one five star resort, Peppers Parehau, has enjoyed record occupancy rates, defying tourism trends. We also keep up to date with the Restaurant Association of New Zealand and Hospitality New Zealand’s lobbying on behalf of our industry at Government level.
Our Executive Chef this month has rock star connections, but calls himself ‘the homeless chef’!
Take a fresh look at pre-prepared foods.
