Maeve Webster, President of Menu Matters, is a leading consultant and thought leader for the foodservice industry. She has spearheaded hundreds of major industry studies during her 18 years as a foodservice specialist, and today runs a private consultancy focused on working with foodservice professionals to analyse, understand and leverage food and consumer behaviour trends.
She believes it’s less important to understand what’s growing or declining than the why and what this means for us.
In addition to her consulting work Maeve owns a café in Bennington, Vermont, where she runs the kitchen and designs the menu. Not only has this been a labour of love, it has brought to life the issues she has consulted on for nearly two decades.
Maeve is a sought-after speaker, appearing at top industry events such as Flavor Experience, World of Flavors, MISE, RCA, National Restaurant Association Show and New Products Conference. She has contributed to major media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, NPR, CNBC, MSNBC and CBS, and is a regular contributor to several industry publications.
