Cooper states that current costs have brought the much needed stability to food prices for both retailers and customers, as well as for the quality of their menus. The drop in berry prices has allowed Cooper and his team to offer a greater variety of choices.

"Our brewery muesli are really beautiful in the summer because we can use blackberries, blueberries and strawberries and stone fruit."
