Peter Martin has some 35 years experience making him a leading commentator on the eating and drinking out sector in the UK. 


He has launched and run a raft of business magazines, newsletters and conferences and is probably best known as both co-founder and publisher of the M&C Report newsletter and more recently co-founder of Peach Factory, the specialist media, consultancy, research and events business for the hospitality sector created with partner Christine Martin, and acquired by CGA, the international data, insight and research consultancy, in July 2013.


Peter is a director of CM&Co, a new boutique sector consultancy, and now strategic adviser to a number of companies, including CGA, with whom he continues to work closely. CGA provides market insight, analysis and brand profiling, working with brand owners, operators, investors and suppliers. Research products include the Coffer Peach Business Tracker and the BrandTrack consumer survey, both of which Peter helped create and develop. CGA continues to run the Peach portfolio of industry conferences and events, including the Peach2020 conference and Hero & Icon Awards, which Peter chairs and curates. 


He is an adviser to YFood, organiser of London Food Tech Week, and is currently working with Harri and Orderscape, two US-based tech enterprises in the hospitality space, now breaking into the UK market. 


In 2016 he won the Special Achievement Award from Eat Out magazine, and in 2018 the Special Award at the Casual Dining Restaurant & Pub Awards.
