“Customers are looking for new meal solutions & their needs are very varied.  British tastes have changed over the years. We are much more willing to eat a far wider range of traditional and worldwide cuisines. Customers needs have also changed. The demise of school cookery lesson has given us a generation that can not cook. However the wide exposure to T.V. Chefs and personalities has encouraged a desire to rekindle our knowledge in food. This and the ever increasing food scares & exposé programmes on animal welfare & manufacturing methods means that people today are far more aware of where their food comes from and what it contains..”
