Overview

At our Food & Drink Futures online event we will unveil the ideas and disruptors that are shaping the future of food and drink

In 2020, the food and drink sectors have continued to evolve at a rapid rate. Covid-19 has, in many ways, changed and humanised how we view our diets, bringing with it new challenges and opportunities as what, where and how we eat and drink responds to global upheaval.

Trends to be explored include the rise of augmented reality restaurants, how start-ups are creating next-generation sugars and the media-driven delivery platforms serving up edible entertainment.
