Curry Roadshow tackles issues threatening industry
Everyone has a favourite ‘curry house’ and Curry is one of Britain’s most loved foods best demonstrated this week with the celebration of ‘National Curry Week’.
Currently it is a huge industry, generating over £4.1 billion for the economy with over 12,000 outlets in the UK. Yet the industry is struggling to survive.
A group of around 200 curry houses and businesses came together within the NORTH WEST ENGLAND REGION to discuss the slow death of the curry house in Britain, this week.
The final regional Roadshow of ‘The Catering Circle’ took place at the Eastern Pavilion Banqueting Hall in Oldham and featured eminent speakers from the Catering Sector and Channel S TV. The event looked at how ‘Curry’ has become an integral part of British culture, yet the Curry Industry faces an epidemic crisis – threatened with lack of chefs, staff shortages, tax rises, escalating business costs and the emergence of technology, resulting in the potential death of the traditional curry house.
Experts spoke across a number of fields, advising business owners on a whole range of subjects from immigration, the legal sector, food safety, food allergens, health & safety, branding & marketing, technology and unity & collaboration within the catering industry.
The final Roadshow in OLDHAM will be followed by a Grand Finale in London in early 2016 and a live TV programme exploring the burning issues within the curry industry will air soon after. The show called ‘The Catering Circle’ is due to be broadcast in 2016 on one of the UK’s leading TV Channels dedicated to the Bangladeshi community- Channel S (Sky 814) in association with Purple-I Technologies.
