Atherton talks about seeing an opportunity to press the “restart button” on the industry, adding: “This is a real opportunity that we won’t get again, to restart everything: our sustainability, are we doing enough with plastics, with our food waste, staff training and the environment.”

Williams agreed: “It’s so important that we carry on doing things like this because it will make the industry stronger. There’s no better time than this particular time to be doing this kind of thing.”
