Our Founder

Our founder Tony Laurenson passed away suddenly in January 2021. The outpouring of love and kindness from across the industry, along with so many messages of support show the hundreds, if not thousands, of lives that Tony touched and the incredible legacy he created.

Tony launched Eat to the Beat in February 1984. It didn’t take long for other top artists and bands to be enticed by delicious food, the friendly and professional approach and ultra-efficient logistics services. In 1991, Eat to the Beat blossomed into Global Infusion Group.

Industry awards came rolling in under Tony’s leadership, we have won over 60 awards during our 37 years in business, including the Queen’s Business Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2014 and 2017.

Moving to Aston Clinton and bringing all the businesses back together under one roof was the next stage in Tony’s vision for the company and leaves us in a rock-solid place for the future.
Tony always ensured that he had a fantastic team of people around him, they remain and are committed to fulfilling Tony’s dreams and continuing to make him proud.
