Food & Drink Futures 2021

Online Event - 28 October



Join our Food & Drink Futures online event for a packed programme of practical insights, exclusive debates, and an executive summary of new sector directions.

What it means to be nourished is changing. As we move into a period of unprecedented food insecurity, what we eat and who we eat it with are taking on new meaning. As mindsets move from optimisation to survival, people are increasingly focusing on shoring up food security, while also re-evaluating the role that it plays in defining our cultures and communities.  

Looking to the future, we can expect to see recalibrated food and drink supply chains that fuse technology with traditional techniques and regional identities to ensure future-proofed and more meaningful eating experiences. 

You can buy tickets for this event for just £75.

‘As the climate crisis makes access to food less secure, societies will need to look at food and the culture around it as an opportunity to become more resilient. In this landscape, what it means to be nourished will take many forms, as technology and culture fuse to connect communities but also create more resilient supply chains.’

Martin Raymond, co-founder of The Future Laboratory
