At the end of June the Young Leaders forum met for the third time this year and we were delighted to be joined by Ali Hannaford, Director at Paramount21.
Ali talked to the group about her experience of working for her father’s food business straight out of school and then later setting up her own small family run business, Paramount21. Ali then told of the challenges she has faced over the years and how she found a way through them, with COVID-19 being the latest hurdle to jump over, and also, how innovation is a big part of building her business.
We would like to thank Ali for taking the time to join us and for giving the Young Leaders Forum an insight into your journey within the food industry.
Do you want to learn from the industry leaders of today?
The BFFF are looking for passionate young individuals to join an established group of 16 like-minded members. The group holds six meetings a year, going forward, these will now be a mix of virtual and face-to-face meetings/site visits.
At the end of August, we will be meeting in London for our first face-to-face meeting, where we will be joined by Charles Banks, Co-Founder of The Food People for a presentation about Food Trends.
