WCB ‘Lunchtime Bites’ Interview features meat publisher
The Worshipful Company of Butchers has confirmed that its next online Lunchtime Bites interview will be on Monday 27th June and will feature Meat Management’s very own publisher Graham Yandell. The interview, which starts at 12.30pm, normally takes around 30 minutes or so and the interviewer on this occasion will be Liveryman John Howard.
As many will know, John worked in the marketing of Danish meat and other food products in the UK for many years until his retirement a couple of years ago.
Graham, who celebrates 40 years in meat publishing this year, said he was looking forward to the interview. “It’s very flattering to be asked,” he said, “I just hope those who tune in find it interesting and that John goes easy on me – no Jeremy Paxman style questions please!”
The popular Lunchtime Bites idea was started by the WCB during lockdown and remains as a series of live interviews with its Liverymen from a variety of backgrounds. It can be accessed by both Liverymen and the wider industry free of charge on the day.
John Howard said: “I’m looking forward to giving Mr Yandell a grilling, it seems like he’s been around forever – even longer than me – and of course he has seen a massive change in the industry over the years and worked with many of the top people is all sectors. A man who is well known for expressing his views with some candour, I think we shall be in for an interesting interview, which I am certainly looking forward to.
“Its always revealing to do these things and very often you get to see the man behind the man (or woman for that matter), and we may find out more about someone who has actually changed the face of meat industry media and revolutionised the way we see and engage with it over four decades.”
Graham added: “I have always been very proud to be part of the meat industry and a Liverman with WCB. We have a great story to tell as an industry and more than ever we have to tell it effectively.”
