Preparing a small, entrepreneurial food and beverages business for sale and rapid growth, with Paolo Peretti, Managing Director of Vital Ingredient.
An interview with Paolo Peretti, MD of Vital Ingredient
In this episode of Multi-Site Masters, I’ll be talking to Paolo Peretti, an operator with 30 years’ experience in the food and beverage (F&B) sector, working in the UK and internationally with brands such as Pret, Leon, SSP and now, as Manager Director of the Vital Ingredient brand, which sells salads, hot foods and smoothies in the London area.
Paolo will tell us about his career to date and explain why he still rates one of the former employers, PRET A Manger, so highly.
We’ll focus though on how he’s helped Vital Ingredient to prepare for sale and look back at some of the specific actions he and the management team have taken over the last year, to help drive the growth of the brand.
