Since 2015, Accor has led an in-depth process around the de-standardization of its food and beverage offering, mainly in the economy and mid-range segments. F&B has become a key ingredient of hospitality, which has always influenced the reputation of the Group's addresses. More than just a place to stay, the hotel places F&B at the heart of the experience, making it possible both to meet new customer expectations and to attract local customers. The Group's F&B convictions had already been highlighted in a previous book and are now summarized and illustrated in the introductory pages of this new concept book: a true mission, a common vision of the market based on eight trends, four strategic pillars, commitments to healthy and sustainable food, etc.

"Creative", with the use of illustrators to enhance the commitments. The F&B vision with Aga and Thomas Hayman to design the comic strip.
