President, Menu Matters
Maeve Webster, President of Menu Matters, is a food trend expert and leading consultant for the food 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 manufacturers and operators to analyze, understand, and leverage food trends.
In addition to her consulting work, Maeve owns a café in Bennington, VT, running the kitchen and designing the menu. This has not only been a labor of love but has brought to life the issues from both a consumer and operator point of view that she has consulted on for nearly two decades. At home, she and her partner are building out an orchard and market garden.
Maeve holds a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago.
