Gulfood 2020 was the last large scale (in person) trade show that many in the food and beverage industry attended before the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to retreat into our homes in such an unprecedented way.
Since then, many of us have had to adapt to a new style of working and leverage technology to retain or establish our professional links. It really hasn’t been easy, juggling and blurring home and work lives in a way that has led some to exhaustion, elevated stress and despair.
As we entered 2022 there still seemed no end in sight, with the latest Omnicron variant appearing to be the next challenge we were going to face…and yet dare I say it, the Covid situation has somewhat dissipated, and life seems to be returning to normal. Certainly this is the case from a UK perspective, with no further Covid restrictions in place and the return to work based environments and socialising.
Here our founder Victoria talks about her latest experience of being part of Gulfood 2022.
