The food & drink businesses that brightened my 2020

Happy New Year! I hope you had a good Christmas and are doing ok given the context. I should have posted this article before the end of 2020 but I was hiding in a Christmas bubble away from the Internet for six consecutive days and never got to finish it until now.
