  • What’s New

    Back in 2010, The Hale Group published Foodservice 2020 forecasting the future operating environment and this white paper is still relevant – the market has developed and evolved as forecasted. We thought it was time to look at the next planning horizon and so, our newest white paper Foodservice 2025 does that.

    In September 2017, The Hale Group presented Foodservice 2025 at a roundtable event in Dallas. This invitation-only event was sponsored by The Core Group and gathered fifty foodservice industry leaders to vet Foodservice 2025 and engage in a thoughtful, productive discussion about the future foodservice operating environment of 2025.

    Bob Ludwig recently gave a speech to a group of investors on the implications of the emergence of Big Data in Agriculture. See the slides from his speech

    The Hale Group, working with International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA) Strategic Issues Series, developed a White Paper: GPOs in Foodservice - Landscape & Growth Opportunities to help our clients navigate this growing market trend.
