Footprint Special Interest Group's are the Think Tanks of the foodservice and hospitality industry. They set out to create clarity on particular issues and for the thought-leading experts in their field to help define a narrative on contentious issues the industry is faced with. Past SIG's have for example included Halal, Nutrition, GM.
Depending on the issue, a SIG will decided whether the get-together is Chatham House Rules or whether comments are merely off the record. In some cases the group decide that the subject is worthy of on the record comment and wider distribution.
Currently no scheduled Special Interest Group's.
