Detailed analysis of prospects for UK food and drink exporters in the Brazilian market, published by the Grocer in May 2014:
Interesting article I wrote for Eurofruit Magazine back in 2012.. much of which can still be said to be relevant today.
I’ll be using the next few posts to highlight some of my previous journalistic work.. some of this may appear a little out of date, but I’ll start with some of the older articles, working through to more recent reports!
I recently appeared on BBC Click to speak about Laser Food’s innovative laser labelling technology for fruit, which they believe could one day completely replace sticky labels.
The technology removes pigment from the fruit’s surface to show information such as the item’s sell-by date and price without affecting the taste or shelf-life of the fruit.
Top UK retailer Marks and Spencer is currently trialling the technology as laser labelling could, it says, help lower its carbon footprint.
Some images from this year’s edition
I’ve uploaded some pics from my visit to the #FruitAttraction 2013 trade fair in Madrid last month.
It was a good show and (to me at least) looked to have grown considerably since I was last there.
Hungry Planet: What the World Eats by photographer Peter Menzel is a fantastic book that has been published in various forms by Material World since 2005. It looks like there’s a new edition out as the book has received a fair bit of attention in the British press this week.
The book is basically a photo essay looking at what 30+ families, from Chad to California, consume in terms of food and drink during an average week and it makes for fascinating viewing (or reading if you prefer!).
Mexico may have been garnering bad publicity, but the country’s thriving fresh produce sector shows that there are more positive sides to the Latin American nation than narcos, avian flu, poverty and street crime.
In the attached article (published a couple of months ago by the UK’s Fresh Produce Journal), I take a look at some of the latest developments in the sector and outline why I believe export markets outside North America are beginning to appear more attractive to Mexican producers..

Here’s a link to an article I wrote for Eurofruit Magazine, which shows that not everyone has been a loser in the current Spanish crisis.
However, whatever happens, it looks like things will certainly get worse before they get better..
