Welcome to Next Month’s News, the Food Manufacture Group’s new podcast that predicts what topics will dominate next month’s food and drink manufacturing headlines.

The podcast begins with a survey of the most popular stories among the 100,000 plus independently-audited unique monthly visitors to FoodManufacture.co.uk.

The top three most popular topics in July were the E.coli outbreak which killed two people, the 2 Sisters’ factory fire which needed 10 fire engines to fight the blaze, and the Top Track 100 fastest growing manufacturers. See the box below for more

E.coli outbreak

The podcast moves to consider the topics most likely to occupy our headlines in August. The top two predictions were the impact of Brexit on food and drink manufacturers, and whether Public Health England will find the source of the E.coli outbreak.

Meanwhile, if you know a colleague who would value the latest news, views and analysis from the fast-moving world of food and drink manufacturing, please send them this link to receive our free, daily newsletters delivered every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

August’s news:
  • Public Health England probes source of E.coli outbreak
  • How Brexit will impact food and drink manufacturers
  • Will Bernard Matthews find a buyer?
  • Will Greencore reveal more acquisitions in the UK or the US?
