This month we are welcoming Willie Biggart, Founder & MD, Spoonfed, Suzanne Dawson, Head of Sector Relationships, Interface and Leigh Farmer, General Manager, CAU Restaurants
Willie Biggart and Murray McNicol became investor Directors in a catering business that delivered food to offices; a lucrative market but one that was operationally hard to run. They searched for a system to help efficiency, when they couldn't find any that met their needs, they created their own. After seeing the benefits first hand, they exited the catering business and enhanced the software, bringing it to the wider catering marketplace in 2013.
Spoonfed was born.
Established in 2005, Interface - The knowledge connection for business is a central hub connecting organisations from a wide variety of national and international industries to Scotland's 23 higher education and research institutes.
Suzanne joined Interface – the knowledge connection for business as Head of Sector Relationships in 2014. In her role she is responsible for a team which encourages innovation in key growth sectors, including food & drink, Scotland’s largest manufacturing sector. To encourage step-change innovation in this sector the team has brought together businesses and academics in Common Interest Groups. These groups were established to solve industry-wide challenges and provide a critical mass to respond to UK and European calls for funding. One of these groups is the Food & Drink Resource Efficiency Industry Advisory Group which Interface leads in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland and the Scottish Food & Drink Federation.
Many years ago, the founders of CAU fell in love with the vibrancy of Buenos Aires, a city where cosmopolitan collides with an irresistibly chaotic energy. When they started CAU, their vision was to capture that spirit in a restaurant that would fit right into the heart of Palermo, Buenos Aires.
Their menu embraces Buenos Aires cuisine, a melting pot of comfort food inspired by Italy and Spain alongside the jewel in Argentina's crown, its beef. Mouthwaterin steaks, burgers and steak sandwiches are joined by a tempting selection of more-ish favourites, each with a distinctive Buenos Aires twist.
