CNN : Food for thought

MUMBAI: CNN International show 'Global office' sees the innovative business show setting its sights on one of the few industries that can boast of year on year growth: the food and drinks business. In this episode, CNN's Kristie Lu Stout looks at the one of the fastest growing sectors of the food industry, the reinvention of a centuries-old beverage company, and one man who is looking to preach his culinary gospel beyond his home shores.

Eating healthily has turned organic farming into a hugely lucrative industry, with global sales of organic food approaching US$ 40 billion a year. Global office looks at how major supermarket chains are taking advantage of the organic trend and assesses whether it is driven by altruistic goals or pure profit.

From there the show visits the headquarters of the largest beverage company in the world. Diageo is the world's leading premium drinks manufacturer, whose brands include Smirnoff, Johnnie Walker, Guinness, Baileys and Crown Royale, and Global office spends time with CEO Paul Walsh to discuss the delicate balancing act that is marketing the company's alcoholic brands, and promoting sensible drinking.

After five cookbooks, three hot restaurants and a globally syndicated cooking show, Australian celebrity chef Bill Granger is ready to take the world by storm. Bill is now looking to expand his brand beyond the shores of his home country; and he's set his sights on the country where his passion for food began: Japan. But will diners there be enraptured by Bill's creations? Global office finds out.
