Description

Following from the success of our inaugural Food's Future Summit 2017, we are back to explore more of the pertinent issues, challenges and advances surrounding the perennial question:

What does our Food's Future hold?


A finalist for The Spark Awards - Best Event, this year’s Summit features an expanded, two-day programme that delves even more comprehensively into current and critical topics. Day 1 (Friday, 21 September), will be packed with keynote speeches and panel discussions from key industry insiders, while Day 2 (Saturday, 22 September) will feature interactive workshops and talks. Both days will feature a Foodie Marketplace, where new, futuristic and innovative products will be on display and even for sale!

For the first time ever, we will also introduce a Feature Country to explore the expertise and experiences from international leaders. For 2018, we have partnered with the Consulate General of Sweden to feature Sweden’s innovative policies, practices and products which offer progressive solutions to a sustainable food's future.
