Driving gender balance in kitchens
with Maria Canabal
Currently, it’s obvious that women are under-represented in the food and hospitality industry. At the same time—and this might not be a coincidence—society has become increasingly distrustful of the food industry. Women’s voices need to be heard and their talents deployed, so that we can boost confidence in the food sector and construct a vision of the future based on values of sustainability and equal opportunity. If society, and also the food and wine industry, is to evolve towards greater sustainability, greater equality, stronger growth and increased social progress, women must be able to take their rightful place.
