This 6th edition of the best-selling textbook Food and Beverage Management for the hospitality, tourism & event industries has been updated and revised to take account of current trends within education and the hospitality, tourism and leisure industries. This includes changes to management best practice brought about the consequences of COVID and Brexit, as well looking at the impact of the increasing use of technology and kitchen/service robotics, changes to allergen regulations and issues of sustainability and business ethics, including ethical sourcing. It recognises that operations are not an end in themselves and food and beverage management is as much about the management of the business, as it is about specific aspects of the food and beverage product.
