#112 Jon Davies, MD of Levy UK and Ireland, on the Circular Food Economy

Published on: 24th June, 2021

Levy UK is the catering and hospitality partner to many of the UK's iconic sport, leisure, heritage, performing venues, conference and exhibition centres – and with that comes great responsibility for a green future. MD of Levy UK and Ireland Jon Davies shares how so much is possible to change within the catering and hospitality industry, and why the future is bright. 

In this inspiring conversation, we learn more about how such a large catering company is tackling food waste and working with sustainable suppliers. We also discuss rewilding land, educating people’s food choices, preparing for this year’s UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), finding sustainable solutions for clients – and the power of oyster mushrooms.

    Michael Tingsager

    I love to develop and grow hospitality and restaurant leaders to unleash their own and their organisations true potential by reframing thinking by putting people first.

    I believe and live by building hospitality and restaurants businesses from the inside out. When your employees love your company, your customers will love you — brand nirvana.

    I was born into the industry and learned the ropes on the frontline by working in the front of the house and heart the operation in my Mum and Dad's restaurants. Since then I've branched out. Over the years I've had different roles within operations and people - running and managing my own restaurants to being multi-unit operations and people director (+24 units/+250 employees) and working with global brands like McDonald’s for +11 years.

    At Hospitality Mavericks we are on a mission to inspire leaders and entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry to create profitable and heart-centred businesses from the inside out; the kind that both employees and customers love and support. Here you will find conversations with industry Mavericks who take a value-based approach to run their businesses whilst displaying a fierce passion for our industry. They Dare to be Different.
