Video Highlights from Food and Beverage “Post-COVID Reality Panel and Networking” Event

August 6, 2020

Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting a virtual networking and panel event on “Post-COVID Reality: Changes Expected in the Food and Beverage Industry and What the Data is Forecasting.”

We are delighted to share some key takeaways from the program with you.

The session started off with an analysis of current food and beverage industry data. The panel discussion ran the gamut of topics affecting the industry, from challenges presented by the pandemic, such as delays and implementing safety procedures, to insight on the current and future M&A climate, and offered a pulse on the hiring decisions that are being prioritized right now and what that tells us about the future.  The panel portion of the event concluded with some questions from the attendees which allowed each speaker to leave the audience with one key item of focus for the coming months.

The conversation featured panelists Bill Moses, Founder and CEO of Flying Embers, and Founder of KeVita Probiotic Drinks; Greg Wank, Partner and Food and Beverage Leader at Anchin; Josh Wand, Founder and CEO of ForceBrands; Nicholas Giannuzzi, Partner and Founder of The Giannuzzi Group, LLP; Nick McCoy, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Whipstitch Capital; and was moderated by Mike Burgmaier, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Whipstitch Capital.
