BBPA comments on the planned merger of the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers and the British Hospitality Association

Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive of the British Beer and Pub Association, comments:

 

“Many congratulations to the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers (ALMR) and the British Hospitality Association (BHA) on their proposed merger. As a sector, brewing and pubs contributes £23 billion to the UK economy and we look forward to working closely with the new Association on our shared concerns. Congratulations to Kate Nicholls on her new role. It is thoroughly deserved and a big challenge, but she has all the attributes to make it work.

 

“Thanks must also go to Ufi Ibrahim for all her hard work and particularly for the Big Hospitality Conversation which attracted new employees into our sector. We wish her well.”
